I am Mrs. Saroja Subramanium @ Arulmigu Siddhi Vinayagar Tirukkovil, Johor Jaya, Malaysia. Writing a report upon request from Saiva Siddhanta Mission, Malaysia.
Satguru was invited by the Arulmigu Siddhi Vinayagar Tirukkovil since the temple is nearing its 12th year renovations. Satguru touched down on the 17th of November, 2017. We wanted solid blessings for the temple and its currents activities; which Satguru showers on us profusely as always. Satguru has been here a few times, we fondly remember him launching History of Hindu India in the presence of Arumuganathaswami and Yoginathaswami of Kauai Aadheenam.
We have regular Hindu Basics class here, the temple with only Lord Ganesha presiding with all His glory. There is a huge need for proper Hindu Basics education, I mean the very basics, which I found Path To Siva an immense help. It's an absolutely needed text book. I am still going through the book and digesting it myself but using it for teaching, which forces me to learn even more from it since my understanding deepens whenever I teach with it.
So we the temple invited Satguru Himself, as he is the creator of it. We all joined in to work as a team. Satguru gave gifts of Path To Siva to some 20 temples here. Satguru's educational efforts are highly praised. I am getting more orders from the public for the book now. Also many Singaporeans are communicating with me to get the books. Some 200+ locals and many Singaporeans turned up for the event, we also had a few Chinese who joined us. The presentation was gentle, easy-to-digest, along with live Tamil translation. We enjoyed the event greatly. Thank you Satguru for your blessings and presence in our lives here in Johor.

Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami attends the mandalabishekam at the Sri Athi Eeswaran Sivan temple, Sentul. The temple is one of the oldest temples in Malaysia. About 500 people attended & received blessings from Satguru. He also gave a talk on God Siva being the God of love & not destruction as is commonly misunderstood by many. The talk was well received as devotees of the temple listened attentively.
