A new phase began today with our homa as usual. It was followed by Ardra Abhishekam at 9 am.
For those following Bodhinatha’s talks, his bhashya on the February Mamsani (meditation of the month) was posted today.
Saravananathaswami performs homa today.
Bodhinatha gave a short upadesha today on Gurudeva’s teachings about the difference between Satchinananda and Parasivam. The former is formless in the sense of amorphous, like water is formless. Parasivam is beyond even that.
"Stand strong for Saivism." The nature of life for Saivites is to turn work into worship, to turn the secular into the sacred. Each day give a little extra warmth, humanness and upliftment to others. Every day is a holy day, all day long. We want to follow our religion even in our dreams. If we help someone, we're worshiping. Wherever we are, that's a place of worship. "To the Saivite Hindu all of life is sacred. All of life is religion."
