Dr. Yoganathan and his wife Shylaja are here visiting from Melbourne, Australia. Both are originally from Jaffna, Sri Lanka. Dr. Yoganathan remembers visiting St. Yoga Swami as a boy and states that he was named after this great Sat Guru.
Both attended Sat Guru Bodhinatha’s presentation and talk regarding Sage Yogaswami’s 45th Year Celebration in Keysborough, Melbourne on February 17th recently and then were blessed to meet with Bodhinatha afterwards.
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.
