New Phase Begins with Homa

We are back after at two-day retreat and had another magical homa this morning to begin our phase. Sadasivanathaswami presided in Bodhinatha’s stead.

Last Week's Tour

With the holiday season many Hindu families with children are free to travel. Our last tour was on the 23rd. The Aadheenam gardens are a magical setting to share a few basic beliefs of Hinduism in the spirit of education. Many are from Western faiths and they are interested to hear the Hindu declaration that God never punishes. Our law of karma explains that it is our own thoughts, speech and action which are the powerful forces that spin out into the cosmos and return to us as the temporary creations and circumstances of our life. We also have Hindus coming to Kauai for events like a wedding only to be told by the locals about Hindu temple they can visit. Paramacharya Sadasivanathswami signed books for guests today. He explained to one fortunate couple Gurudeva's insistence on zero tolerance for inharmonious conditions, and how to apply it - both in the monastery and in family life. Holiday season brings the little ones and our new children's books are a big hit with Hindu families. They are real life stories of challenges children face with practical, modern examples and answers of how to work through them.

Bodhinatha meeting Mauritius MC students and SHR Catalysts

On November 19, Bodhinatha met all the enrolled Master Course students and Saivite Hindu Religion catalysts at the Ebony Conference Room at the Link Hotel situated in Cyber City at Ebene. The place was very quiet and cosy and everyone felt comfortable inside during the session. The first session was about two hours and the last part with an interactive questions and answers. Then we had a coffee break and followed a meeting with the SHR catalysts who are at present holding classes all over the island. Bodhinatha talked about the new syllabus and teaching materials under preparation. Bodhinatha felt that it would be a good approach to have parents participate in our SHR classes.
