KATHMANDU, NEPAL, July 19, 2017 (Google News): Thousands of pilgrims and locals queued up as early as 2 o'clock on Monday morning in the auspicious Shravan month to get a glimpse of Lord Shiva at Pashupatinath temple, one of the most sacred temples for the devotees of Lord Shiva. According to Hindu mythology Lord Shiva is the ruling Deity of Monday and the Mondays of Shravan month are even more auspicious as the event of Samudra Mathan--churning of the ocean--took place in the Shravan month when Lord Shiva displayed his might by consuming all the poison that came out of it.

FIJI, July 12, 2017 (Fiji Sun): The Then India Sanmarga Ikya Sangam has approved capital projects of US$247,000 for the upgrade and beautification of the Sri Siva Subramanya Swami Temple in Nadi. This was agreed by the council of management during its meeting on Sunday in Nasinu. In June 2018 the Temple will celebrate its 24th Anniversary with the Maha Kumbabhishekam Pooja, and the capital works are part of this auspicious occasion.

The Sri Siva Subramanya Swami Temple is one of the largest Hindu Temples in the Southern Hemisphere and a landmark for the town of Nadi. Jai Narayan, chief executive officer of TISI Sangam said, Sangam's upgrade of the Temple fits in well with Nadi's efforts to become a city and beautify the township. He said the council of management is very appreciative of the efforts of the Temple Board as the full expenditure for the project is self-funded.

When I think of myself as a body, I am your servant, my Lord; when I think of myself as an individual soul, I am part of you; but when I realize I am atman, you and I become one.
