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.
Lord Siva is the Supreme Being of the universe, not one of many gods. To Saivites Siva is the supreme being; to Vaishnavites Vishnu is the supreme being. The soul starts with experiencing the world. On one side the soul is pulled by veiling grace toward the world. On the inside the soul is pulled by revealing grace toward God. Resolving karma, maturing in the world, fulfilling dharma, we move toward imperturbability, realization, moksha.
