Guru Purnima Celebrations During Mauritius Innersearch

We are at the end of a sweet day, a rare Guru Purnima full of
Sivaness, full of Sivanbu, full of Sivasambhandam. The Gurupuja for
Bodhinatha was unspeakably joyous, preceded by a parade through the
Spiritual Park with Bodhinatha carried on palanquin by twelve
shishyas. Two large groups were in front, men singing loud and
melodically of the guru's greatness and four dozen women dancing
Bhangra with grace and gusto. Kids all carrying colorful flags

Our Innersearcher Swami Parameshananda later noted in all his travels
in India and the West he has never seen the Satguru so beautifully and
traditionally honored.

Vignettes from Mauritius Innersearch

Aside from the intensity of classes and pujas, Innersearch always includes a lot of cultural variety taken from the locale where we travel as well as site-seeing to get an overview of the country. (Some images are panoramas, try going left and right)

Innersearchers—Always Together

fellowship on innnersearch While Innersearch is about being with the Satguru and his monks, it is also profoundly about competent souls meeting and melding. There is a sharing that is daily, at meals, during breaks win the round of classes with the swamis, on the bus rides to and from the Spiritual Park. Our Innersearchers are from ten nations and almost as many linguistic backgrounds, and yet they seem so much a family here in Mauritius, with lists of sharing of their shared path, discussing the challenges life brings to them at work, at school and more. Making friends for life. It's a magical gathering and in part because of the intensity of the days forges new friendships for life.

Innersearch — The Power of International Satsang!

satsang in Mauritius This Innersearch is like no other. The scale of our Saiva Siddhanta Church membership here is unique in the world and Innersearchers have been greeted with a hospitality that has no measure. Not only that, the members here, hundreds of them, have turned out to clean the Spiritual Park, cook, drive and so much more. So the receptions are rich, the flower arrangements are amazing, the pujas are out of this world. To watch the international membership and Academy students meet and mingle with the Mauritius devotees has been such an experience. And it is reciprocal. Mauritian members are strengthening us and providing a model of mature spiritual family many Innersearchers have never experience. On the other side, Bodhinatha's presence with the Innersearchers is giving Mauritian members new enthusiasm for their sadhana, new friends for life.

Innersearch — A Time for Teaching

innersearch classes Lots of questions coming up in the Teaching Tent in Mauritius. Classes are wide-ranging, and more than one Innersearcher has said her brain feels like it is growing from all the new insights coming her way. Bodhinatha is in such a great form, guiding the group through the Microcosm, answering their sometimes challenging queries, bringing humor to every teaching moment, often staying long after a class as the Innersearchers draw near to hear a fellow student's question and to suddenly offer another, and another. Clearly a great yearning here for the Satguru's words that will guide their lives in the years ahead. Precious moments….
