So what else happened today? The Ekadanta Kulam announced the first preparations for the 2010 Innersearch Kaua’i.
It is a wonderful opportunity. Bring your physical body to where your awareness is and visit us on 2010, in a unique pilgrimage!
Bodhinatha told us he is completing a small book with insights on how to get the most benefit from a pilgrimage. He will use it during his upadeshas on the 2010 Innersearch.
The dates are June 12-21, 2010 — save them on your calendar if you’re interested. It will be limited to around 50 participants. More details are to come. To join a mailing list for this Innersearch, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org
The letter "Ya" in the Panchakshara Mantra, Namasivaya, stands for the soul. Bodhinatha uses the Panchakshara Mantra to show how the soul is initially drawn by Siva's veiling grace, which leads the soul to maturity through experience in the world. Then comes Siva's revealing grace. When we've had enough of the world, Siva's grace pulls us toward God. The mantra also has the simple, two-syllable form. Si- Reflecting on God the Transcendent Absolute, Va-God as the All Pervading Consciousness
