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.
"Stand strong for Saivism." The nature of life for Saivites is to turn work into worship, to turn the secular into the sacred. Each day give a little extra warmth, humanness and upliftment to others. Every day is a holy day, all day long. We want to follow our religion even in our dreams. If we help someone, we're worshiping. Wherever we are, that's a place of worship. "To the Saivite Hindu all of life is sacred. All of life is religion."
