A chilly and windy weather outside , but very warm and comfortable inside for sishyas seated in the Ganesha Mandapam to piously honor their Guru on this auspicious full moon evening. one could see the beautiful bright moon showering its silver rays which kept dangling on the waters the estuary on the southeastern part of the Spiritual Park.
Volunteers were there on the eve to set up a Guru Peedam and to decorate the place. The ceremony started on time as scheduled with Natchintanaii, Pada Puja, Silent Meditation followed by Bodhinatha's Message projected over the screen and translated in creole by Kulapati Siven Koothan, then a Bodhinatha's MC teaching movie entitled "Efforts" explained by Kulapati Rajen Manick. After listening to the very inspiring message and teachings from Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami's, all sishyas came forward to prostrate at the Holy Tiruvadi just after a final arati.
The ceremony concluded with a humble meal prepared and served by our dedicated Ammas and partaken by all in a relaxed family spirit of sivasambandan.
