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.
Religion needs to be of the present. Mankind is evolving spiritually; mass consciousness is rising. When we go to the temple, in the right spirit, contributing devotion and prana, being open to the blessings of the Deity; it purifies the mind. The Hindu religion focuses on the mind; purifies it; controls it, subdues the ego, makes us more humble.
