On November 16, Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami presided at satsang at the home of Easvan and Devi Param, one of our Church families in Walnut Creek, Northern California. The traditional pada puja was performed, this time by Easvan and Devi’s son, Chandran, and his sons, Bhajana and Jeyendra.
After the pada puja, Bodhinatha gave upadesha.
Everyone felt unlimited blessings flowing forth from the satguru. It was a beautiful day, inside and out, for all who came. Aum Namah Sivaya.
Bodhinatha continues with his weekly series of commentaries on The Path to Siva. In this past Sun One talk, he elucidates the four key beliefs in Hinduism, the three pillars of Sanatana Dharma and Gurudeva's three stages of faith. Primary to Hinduism is the key belief that God is within each of us. To have a well-rounded understanding and experience of Hinduism, to make spiritual progress, adhyatma vikasha, we need scripture, humility, temple worship, devotion. To fully experience God we need the guru to give the spark for meditation and deeper wisdom.
