Dr. Thagarajan met with Bodhinatha yesterday afternoon and today he worked with Arumugaswami on the Hindu Snakes and Ladders game, translating each of the Sanskrit labels on a huge grid of squares. The original goal of the game was to attain moksha.
Today he had his first chanting session with a group of the monks, helping to correct their Sanskrit pronunciation.
Here he is on top of Muruga Hill.

Satguru Speaks fans will note a new talk by Bodhinatha was posted today. See the right side bar links.
Bodhinatha continues with his weekly series of commentaries on The Path to Siva. In this past Sun One talk, he elucidates the four key beliefs in Hinduism, the three pillars of Sanatana Dharma and Gurudeva's three stages of faith. Primary to Hinduism is the key belief that God is within each of us. To have a well-rounded understanding and experience of Hinduism, to make spiritual progress, adhyatma vikasha, we need scripture, humility, temple worship, devotion. To fully experience God we need the guru to give the spark for meditation and deeper wisdom.
