Monastery Pilgrim Update

This week the monastery was visited by Aiyasawmy Dorairajan, a long-time devotee of Gurudeva's work. His parents, Trichinopoly and Meena, were studying with the late Markandeya Peruman in the 80s and are devotees of the Meenakashi Temple in Pearland, Texas. Gurudeva visited their home several times and was received with a pada puja. This memory was regaled by Aiyasawmy during the Ganapati Kulam morning meeting, something that has stuck with him since. Aiyasawmy is a doctor performing his residency in Louisiana.

The monastery has so many souls come to see Kadavul Nataraja and have darshan with Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami. Thanks to all those who fly over and make the effort, we know it is not easy but that is also what makes it so so worth it.

Innersearch Sri Lanka 2018 and 2019

You are officially invited to attend our 2018 and 2019 Innersearches to the island of Sri Lanka! Here is your opportunity to travel with Satguru and his monks for personalized instruction in The Master Course. Twenty-four Innersearch travel-study programs have been held since 1967, taking hundreds of seekers to India, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Tahiti, Hawaii, Malaysia, Japan, Thailand, Russia, Switzerland, the Caribbean, Scandinavia, Australia, New Zealand, Mauritius and dozens of other regions. You can be sure that Innersearch is not your typical vacation but a travel experience that combines the mystical path of Indian spirituality with a superlative retreat from your day-to-day routine.

Each voyage is a pilgrimage to the divine and spectacular inside of you. The beauty, color and grandeur of the outer voyage is but a reflection of a rich inner voyage as we delve the within together. A typical day includes morning classes exploring the esoterics of meditation and discussing how to live a spiritually dynamic life in a modern world and visits to holy places. There are hatha yoga and meditation classes, question-and-answer sessions, and lots of time for informal sharing with Bodhinatha and the swamis. Some of the most enriching moments are when we meet with local Hindus, often joining in grand celebrations as they welcome us to their temples and cultural centers.

The next Innersearch will be a two-week journey to northern Sri Lanka with fifty participants, scheduled to begin in Colombo, February 19 and end March 1 of 2018. An identical program, also leaving in February, is planned for 2019. On both Innersearches there will be days of classes and visits to the temples and holy places associated with the Gurus of our Parampara. Watch the Innersearch Travel-Study page on our website to see details about costs and about how the program planning is progressing and to submit your application
