Jai Ganapati. May the Lord of categories remove all obstacles for a dynamic and supercounscious 5-day phase.
As instructed by Gurudeva, we begin our phase with a homa. This one was unusually powerful.
Many had some experience to share after the homa was over and the shakti had subsided, its rays moving out from Kadavul Temple to bless the world.
Bodhinatha’s talks were about the June Mamsani. He talked about our nerve centers, from the gross physical nerves to the very subtle chakras above the sahasrara. By feeling ourselves as energy, we have a new perspective in life.
The June Mamsani is a wonderful meditation. We will post Bodhinatha’s bhashya soon.
This is a table of some of our 72,000 nadis, or subtle energy currents. A human being is an undiscovered powerhouse, a wonder for the meditator to explore.
Leaving Kadavul temple early in the morning, we are greeted by the sight of Iraivan Temple, a little hidden behind the trees, a palace of mysticism and devotion.
A little bird sings the dawn of a new day.
Rishi Tirumular in blissful samadhi, the serenity of his smile speaking of inner joys. Yogaswami said it well, “You must taste God like one tastes sugar-candy.”
Focus on being a soul, not the body, mind and emotions. When we think of ourselves as a soul we're able to move forward and get closer and closer to Siva. That's the whole idea of Saiva Siddhanta. A negative self-concept is an obstacle. We can change our self-concept through applying Gurudeva's teachings, affirming every day that we are a divine being. Vasana daha tantra: Going back and understanding experiences; clearing up the reactions to the past.
