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.
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.
