Sun Two

Another dynamic day at the Aadheenam. Work continues at the new archway, where the metal worker are now drilling holes to affix a beautiful gate.

The Pillaiyar Kulam gave their news today. Muruganathaswami says there has been an increase in web orders via our Minimela site. Shanmuganathaswami has been working to develop a tracking system for inventory of books in our various locations: USA, India, Malaysia, Mauritius and more! Sometimes we need to move stock from one country to another to keep up with demand. “Crunching the numbers” is what the Pillaiyar Kulam does. Thank you!

Paramacharya Palaniswami and Senthilnathaswami arrive home later this evening from their mission to the mainland.

Education in Mauritius

Now that we have been training catalysts, they are beginning their teaching programs around the country in Mauritius.

These young people normally are under a lot of pressure to study, not only at school but to take “tuition” which are more classes and more homework after hours. The boys are having fun “hamming it up” for the camera.

Poobarlene and Kevina Soobramanien report: “The Saivite Hindu Religion class is conducted on a fortnight basis and preferably on Saturdays at 3 p.m. At this time most of the students are free from private tuition. On September 25th we separated the class into two groups: the older and the younger students. We ended up taking that decision after considering the age gap between the two student groups. That is with different concentration span, coping and communication skills.

Poobarlene taught the younger ones while I took care of the older ones. A positive change was observed between the two groups.

Deepavali Tirukkutam in Malaysia

Report from Malaysia from Deepavali day from Kulapati Dhasan Sivanananda.

Our Saiva Siddhanta Church youths from Klang have been conducting Deepavali bhajans from house to house all week long.

Headed by Thiru Kailasam to collect donations for Iraivan temple. They sing some bhajans followed by few deepavali songs.

The youths plus some members joinde the group and they came to my place in Sri Segambut. We started at 4.30pm and went to nine different houses.

At each house we sang for half an hour.T he family members all felt very happy and encouraged us to conduct the program every year.

After the bhajan, we distribute Gurudeva’s photo, 3 rudraksha seeds from Kauai and vibhuti. Finally refreshment.
