Potriyan Sivanathan arrived from Malaysia today for three-month Task Force stay at the monastery. He’s been with Gurudeva since he was a little boy, being the son of Ramesh and Saraswathy Sivanathan, one of our oldest sishya families in Malaysia.
Here is with fellow task forcer, Maruthu, who now has a companion at the guest house for a couple of weeks before he returns to Malaysia.
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.
