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.”
"There are three kinds of karma: the karma of all deeds done in our past lives; the karmas we bring into this birth to experience; and the karmas we are making by our actions now."
Karma is an automatic system of divine justice. Karma is self-created destiny; a consequence or fruit of action, karmaphala. By accepting not reacting, performing karma yoga, karma can be softened, mitigated. Seeking the grace of God and guru in the right spirit, the mind focused on the Deity and open to blessings, receiving the intense grace of the Deity in a powerful pilgrimage can actually eliminate karma.
