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.
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.
