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.
Unless kundalini is active, the deepest meditative states are not available to us. But to activate kundalini, Gurudeva tells us we must invoke the grace of Lord Ganesha and Lord Murugan. "Yoga is internalized worship which leads to union with God." Experience the inside of you in a profound way. This requires dispassion. The popular term "kriya yoga" usual refers to a form of pranayama, but the original kriya yoga is defined by Sage Patanajli as the practice of three of the niyamas: tapas, svadhyaya and Isvarapranidhana. To achieve samadhi we practice yoga, steady restraint of mental activities, austerity, meditation, detachment, self study and worship of God. Communion with the Ishta Devata, the chosen God is a key and also Gurudeva tells us: the Deity chooses you.
