In this last month of Hinduism Today’s quarterly cycle, the Ganapati kulam is very focused. Kumarswami is working on a special Publisher’s Desk from Bodhinatha that will serve as a complete introduction to Hinduism.
Senthilnathaswami was dislodged from his desk by our renovation work, but beautifully letting the river of live take him, he ended up with the best view we know of.
He spent many weeks focused on the new HT website and is now working on our Video News update.
Paramacharya Palaniswami has been recording his Hinduism Today Video for the January issue. More than 4,100 people have watched last issue’s video.
And we all send you a warm aloha from Kauai Aadheenam!
END OF PHASE
Today is the last day of our phase.
This edition of TAKA will remain posted
over our coming two-day retreat,
until Sun One, January 5, Gurudeva’s Jayanthi.
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.
