|The Malaysia Saiva
Council Youth wing organised a one day educational trip to Patani Para
Estate . This estate is located about 100 Kilometers from Penang. Twenty
eight students has participated in this Program.
The idea of this program is, in addition to providing a theoretical understanding on Saivism there must also a practical experiencing of the real situation. We wanted the students to experience for themselves the temples and the understanding of Saivism of ordinary people particularly in the lower income group. We hoped that through this experience they will see for themselves the wide gap that exists between theoretical Saivism and Saivism as it is practiced in life.
The activities are:
1. The students were taken to a temple for doing a temple research. They had Archana and Prayers in a proper way; Sang Thevaram and Thiruvasakam.
2.Mr.Bala, the program coordinator described the activities.
3.Lesson on the scientific apporaches on Temple Worship has been delivered by Ms.Suba Loganathan.
4. The students visited some houses and talked about Sivalinga Pooja, sang thevaram hymns and interviewed them to understand the kind of life that the people from rural places are living.
