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.
The blessings of Lord Murugan awaken wisdom which resides in his chakra. "Pray to Lord Murugan to unravel the great mysteries of the universe." When we get emotional we lose touch with our wisdom. Murugan inspires penance to soften karmas and purify the mind, chitta-shuddhi. If you do kavadi in the right spirit, to get the full blessing, have in mind specific misdeeds, apologize to the deity, learn from it, promise to do your best. Visions are still happening. Feeling the energy of the deity is stronger during festivals such as Skanda Shashti.
