Today we had the visit of a soul that arrived recently from the Devaloka. Her name is Lyla and she chose the Tanzi family to take this birth. As you can see, she is definitely happy with the choice.
Lyla explained (in not so many words) that Kauai Aadheenam is a beautiful and peaceful place where she feels at home. She also said that she loves the monks and that those long beards are great for pulling.
Rudy Tanzi, Dora Kovacs and Lyla are staying here for a few days. They explained their goal of raising their child to be a confident and strong person, not afraid of new or different things. It’s actually great timing on their part, since Hinduism Today’s latest issue has a beautiful insight on positive discipline.
Don’t miss it, your children will thank you for years to come.
SUTRA 14: GUIDING AND NURTURING CHILDREN
Those who live with Siva personally guide their children’s spiritual and secular education. They teach and model respect, share what happens each day, have fun together and shower love and hugs upon them.
Bodhinatha's Latest Upadeshas: "Not Getting Upset, Viewing Reaction from Higher Faculties" (September 14, 2014)
A measure of how serious we are in making spiritual progress is that we've learned the lesson from experience. Develop the ability to watch the mind think, understand the patterns of emotional action and reaction. Have the sense that you are a divine being to root out imperfections. Becoming upset is a temporary suspension of our higher faculties; transmute the energy into the third eye.

"Eight Features of the Natha Sampradaya" (September 17, 2014)
We have to discover that part of us that is the Self. One of the important benefits of temple worship is it softens the ego. Recognize and love a Being greater than us, building humility. Go to Lord Murugan; His worship strengthens the kundalini. There's a power in learning through listening, shruti, that which is heard. Tradition, sadhana and tapas, informs, inspires, awakens potential.
