Valluvan, Thilagarani and their daughter Kayshana are here from Malaysia on their third pilgrimage. They have attended Gurudeva mahasamadhi events, Skanda Shasthi pujas, and now wanted to attend Ganesha Chaturti here.
"Sadhana is practiced...wherever a pure, serene atmosphere can be found." Achieve steadiness, control of emotions through abhyasa-regular consistent practice with devotion, yoga-the restraint of mental activities and vairaghya-dispassion. Like the growth of a kauri tree, it's a slow process; check it every few years, see the progress.
