On the way down the Tiruneri path these three little devas stopped to pose for us. They are from Holland and their mother comes to stay on Kauai for some months every year. Pelr on the left with her younger brother Cameran and littler sister Bo (we are not sure the spellings are correct).
They were full of questions for the monk with the camera
“Where do you sleep? What do you eat? Who feeds you? Can you get married? Why is the dot on your head black? [It was from this morning homa ashes] Can we get a black dot too?”
Bodhinatha continues with his weekly series of commentaries on The Path to Siva. In this past Sun One talk, he elucidates the four key beliefs in Hinduism, the three pillars of Sanatana Dharma and Gurudeva's three stages of faith. Primary to Hinduism is the key belief that God is within each of us. To have a well-rounded understanding and experience of Hinduism, to make spiritual progress, adhyatma vikasha, we need scripture, humility, temple worship, devotion. To fully experience God we need the guru to give the spark for meditation and deeper wisdom.
