Bodhinatha Visits Mauritius, November 2011, Arrival

Mauritius 17th November, 2011: Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami, accompanied by Sannyasin Saravananathaswami and Sannyasin Siddhanathaswami arrived in Mauritius and were welcomed by sishyas at the SSR International Airport this afternoon. The plane from Malaysia arrived a few minutes earlier and kulapaties Mardemootoo and Manick were at the VIP Lounge to welcome and take care of formalities for our Beloved Satguru and monks from Kauai Aadheenam.

On leaving the Lounge, Bodhinatha and our swamis met all our Church Members and Master Course Students who turned up at the airport to welcome Bodhinatha. The meeting was short but full of happiness and joys. Everyone rushed forward to greet Bodhinatha with flowers and garlands. Then after meeting everyone Bodhinatha left for Grand Bay where Bodhinatha will be staying at a beach villa until Saturday.

When we are selfish, self-centered and flare up and lose control of ourselves, we are like animals. When we reflect understanding, have control of ourselves and use our will to conquer our lower nature, we are using the Godly part of our mind.
