Thirty-fourth Anniversary of San Marga Vision

Sun Four was an auspicious day at the Aadheenam because we celebrated the 34th anniversary of Gurudeva’s vision upon which followed the founding of San Marga and Iraivan temple.

Everyone went out to the Swayambhu Lingam in the dark this morning to celebrate with a quiet profound early morning puja. Here we are after the sun has come up.

We have come a long way since that day of destiny in 1975! Jai Gurudeva! Jai Mahadeva!

Sydney Murugan Temple February 15, 2009. Bodhinatha has come to take part in the annual Youth Day and hopefully to inspire greater participation in the Youth group. His advice to the leaders of the group is to plan more fun activities to supplement the existing karma yoga and educational programs at the temple.

Bodhinatha giving his presentation "Insights into Temple Worship". Every participant has been given a copy of the Home Puja booklet which shows how to do a simple Ganesha puja. Bodhinatha explains that knowing how to do a puja can bring a whole new level of appreciation for the puja done by the priests in the temple. Similarly, having some training in Bharata Natyam will help someone appreciate the subtleties of a dance performance more.

Quite a few teenagers have come for the event.
