Today at Kauai Aadheenam it seems like all the planets moved into constellation “Dynamic Activity” all at once. On the roster was a dry day bringing the much-awaited cement pour of Iraivan’s roof, a visit by Sadhaka Tejadevanatha’s father and sister, more pilgrims arriving for Sivaratri, a bus load of Patels who are attending a conference of hoteliers on Oahu, and then flew to Kauai to visit the temple, interviews by Pacific Journal reporter and photographer doing a story on the monastery and temple and a mini-milestone on the railing of the North Chinna-Gopuram, and also the pouring of the cement for the Anna Purna Gardens Ganesha. And especially bright for today: some good news from Sri Lanka!
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.
