Today the Siddhidata Kulam reported on their activities. The main focus has been getting the forms ready on the roof of Iraivan for the next cement pour which hopefully will happen on Star 3 (third day of our coming 3-day full-moon retreat). Sadhaka Nilakantha has also almost completely the huge job of pruning all our fruit trees.
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.
