The weather was kind to us during Gurudeva’s Mahasamadhi Observances. Then immediately afterwards, the heavens opened up and we had a torrential storm, with six inches in a single hour at it’s peak. All the while, Siva was there, watching it all, doing it all, being it all, in His silent form.
The Sun now has returned to grace His face.
And to reveal the Vedas and Agamas offered to humanity from His hand.
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.
