We are at the end of a very dynamic phase. The level of activity at the Aadheenam ran super high all the way through five dynamic days. Gold gilding of Iraivan, launching the new Hinduism Today web site, painting the new Visitor Info Center, starting with a homa, Chitra puja and ending today with a powerful Vaikashi Vishakam Muruga Abhishakam. It was quite amazing, really. We are so blessed! Thank you Gurudeva!
~~~~~~~~~~~ END OF PHASE
Today is the last day of our phase.
This edition of TAKA will remain posted
over our coming two-day retreat,
until Dvitiya Tithi, Sun One, Tuesday, June 9th.
This is a very auspicious full-moon retreat and one groups of monks is going off to the “end of the earth where souls depart for the heaven worlds,” the edge of of the bhuloka where the devaloka begins… for a three-day camp out at the famed remote westside Polihale beach. We will see you all again on Tuesday.
Hindus believe there is one Truth, we just all don't agree on the name and nature of God. To compare Hinduism with other religions, you need to ask the orthodox practioners what their beliefs are. For example, one Christian minister explained that he believes we are fallen beings, not inherently good and need to be redeemed or face eternal Hell. Hinduism believes the opposite: we are divine beings with instinctive, intellectual and intuitive natures. Everyone will eventually become a spiritual being and attain God realization. That is about as far apart as we can get in beliefs. There is really no way that the two can be compared.
