Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami was invited to visit the Chinmaya Mission in Anaheim during his visit to Southern California last year, but the schedule was too tight to include it. This year, we made it a reality. Here, a Chinmaya devotee introduces Bodhinatha to a group of Balvihar acharyas, or children’s class teachers. Bodhinatha gave a wonderful talk to the group. He spoke about putting Hinduism into practice in our lives, quoting from Swami Chinmayananda’s first public talk, which he adores. He also gave specific advice about speaking with mixed, interreligious marriages. He advises that elders speak with couples before they get married in order to sort out religious affiliations and help make choices about what religion the children will be raised in. Working these things out after marriage just doesn’t work.
After the talk, gifts were presented.
Bodhinatha then spoke with Swami Ishwarananda over some snacks. We have always felt a closeness with the Chinmaya swami order, so the discussion was quite productive.

Bodhinatha's latest upadesha on the human aura. The human aura is in the astral plane. The human aura has two parts: the outer and inner auras. Clear congestion through a combination of vasana daha tantra and meditation, bringing more spiritual energy into your aura. What you're thinking of always existed before you thought of it. Become more fluid, more detached and move awareness more freely in the mind.
