Master Course readers Karuna and Santosh Krinsky from Wisconsin enjoyed darshan with Bodhinatha and asked him pertinent questions on ahimsa and how to effectively increase it in the world, to which Bodhinatha gave wise answers. He shared this principle, for example, to appreciate progress already going on, such as Europe uniting rather than warring with each other as they had always done before. Santosh and Karuna are serious ahimsa activists bound and determined to make a genuine difference. Their writings on the subject may be seen here [www.wholisticinstitute.org] They are owners of New Leaf distribution and a half-dozen other spirituality-based businesses.
~~~~~~~~~~~ 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 Dasami Tithi, Sun One, Monday, January 19th.
There is a continuity between the dominant states of consciousness you are in at the time of death and what you experience after death. The goal is to aim for a higher world. When the momentum winds down that's when we are reborn. We function in about three chakras and from that group we can go up or down. Closing off the lower chakras is the work that needs to be done, it can only be done in a physical body. Keep up regular sadhana, japa, worship and working within oneself.
