Dr. Carl Vadivella Belle experienced an attraction for Lord Murugan, the resplendent son of Lord Shiva, while he was a serving as a diplomat of Australia. He not only took to Hindu worship, as a diplomat in Malaysia, he joined thousands of Kavadis in their journey to the Batu caves for Lord Murugan's blessings.
When he saw kavadis for the first time, he felt an strong energy pass through him which he could not explain. He gradually realized that he was a Hindu at heart and decided to embrace Hinduism. These activities came in the way of his services to the Australian government and Belle had to quit.
Today he is a farmer outside Adelaide, Australia. He also edits Bhakti, a newsletter published in Canberra, Australia, on Hinduism. His wife and other members of his family are also also Hindu.
May Lord Murugan, the weilder of the vel spear, and the apple of Mother Parvati's eye, bless his devotees with his all-transforming energy!
