“What a beautiful day for a tour! Mt. Waialeale was in full view the entire morning. Many local guests joined us today and about a fourth were returning to visit again.”

Bodhinatha's Latest Upadesha: "The Summit of All Religions; Regular Meditation" (February 13, 2015)
Religion has a oneness in mysticism but has major differences in terms of beliefs and practices.
