Sannyasin Senthilnathaswami presided over the Sacred Homa Ceremony this morning, assisted by Sadhaka Tandavanatha.
Afterwards, Paramacharya Palaniswami gave a delightful talk, beginning with stories from the biography of Milarepa, Tibet's Great Yogi, then offering parallels with Gurudeva's life. He then read passages from the unpublished book, with stories of Gurudeva's years in Sri Lanka back in 1949.
Wish I’d been in the temple this morning to hear about my favorite historical hero, Milarepa, and the parallels with Gurudeva’s life. In the TAKA photo, Palaniswami is in the same pose as Milarepa on the cover of his biography.
Bodhinatha's Latest Upadesha: "Detachment from Experiences; Importance of Daily Vigil" (May 5, 2013)
All experiences are good experiences, necessary to get us here. Awareness of aspects of ourselves that are constantly changing is a liberating perception, breaking our chains to mundane areas, detaching from instinctive and intellectual to go into superconscious. The greatest challenge facing youth today is the lack of relating to the devotional side of Hinduism. Daily practice, daily vigil, moves us forward spiritually.
