It is Sun 2 today. Saravananathaswami, the one-man Ekadanta Kulam gave a long report on his activies. He’s working on communications with two young men interested in monastic life in Mauritius. He also processed the new Arul Sishya applications from students in Mauritius who are steadily moving toward full membership in Saiva Siddhanta Church. He’s also working on future travel plans and events for Bodhinatha and working on the new web site for Saiva Siddhanta Church.
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.
