Mauritius Natchintanai Workshop a Success

The April 17th Natchintani Workshop was well attended with over 20 participants. All happily learning Yogaswami's songs and going over the meanings so that we all know what we are singing.

Singing the songs of Yogaswami while at the same time understanding the meaning and imbibing his spiritually exalting message is a powerful sadhana.

"Andatthil pindatthil, aandavanai kaannum"
In the macrocosm, in the microcosm, God is what we see

"Naam athuvena arivathu Kavasam!"
We Are That! Knowing this is our protection!

Following a request from the Patanjali Yogpeeth Trust, a Hindu organization based in Mauritius, Satguru formally launched their project to revive classes for Hindu youth in Mauritius. The Trust will have the support of the Himalayan Academy in the training of their teachers in our teaching materials (mainly the Saivite Hindu Religion series and the new 2015 version of Satguru's Character Building workbook).

Ladies Retreat & Diksha

A small ladies retreat began today, with participants from Malaysia, Singapore and Kauai. One of the participants from Malaysia, Parimala Selvaraj, received mantra diksha from Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami. This diksha means receiving spiritual initiation from the Satguru to chant Aum Namah Sivaya 108 times daily on a rudraksha japa mala. Prior to this, she was chanting Aum Saravanabhava Aum. It is the first of two dikshas that all sishyas in Saiva Siddhanta Church prepare to receive. She is now known as a dikshasishya.
