Bodhinatha's second day in Sydney saw time for a few meetings with local devotees. Here's Ainkaran from Australia and Chelvi from New Zealand celebrating their first anniversary.
Mrs. Nadarajah is one of the first two ladies to (really) actively promote the Iraivan Temple building project among the Sri Lankan community that now calls Sydney home. Here she is (seated next to Bodhinatha) with her family.
Vasaant Krishnan caught up with Bodhinatha at the Helensburg Siva Vishnu Temple south of Sydney. He's flown in from Tasmania where he's attending university to attend all of Bodhinatha's events. Here he says "Vanakkam" and "Good Day" to his family in Singapore.
For our "Great Departure" we prefer to be at home in a religious, uplifting environment, in a clear minded high state of consciousness, having resolved all differences and fulfilled all obligations. There is nothing to fear: "Death is a blissful, light filled transition." We then get settled in the inner worlds with like-minded people of similar religious beliefs.
