Today was a retreat day at the Aadheenam, a break from our daily routine, and Dr. Thiagarajan joined us for a trip across the river to our agricultural land. For a change of pace from the intensive meetings of the past few days, he had the opportunity to drive our big Case tractor under the supervision of one of the Swamis.
Aran Veylan and Potriyan Sivanathan joined us for the journey. They are members of Saiva Siddhanta Church and have come to the Aadheenam on the task force program which gives them an opportunity to serve and do sadhana along with the monastics.
After our milk cows have served us well and are too old to be bred again for milking, we move them to Himalayan Acres to live out their years. We searched for the cows on the more than 300 acres of land and finally found then close to our equipment tent in a shady grove of trees. Here Potriyan cautiously greets Chaturti.
Bodhinatha's Latest Upadesha: "Detachment from Experiences; Importance of Daily Vigil" (May 5, 2013)
All experiences are good experiences, necessary to get us here. Awareness of aspects of ourselves that are constantly changing is a liberating perception, breaking our chains to mundane areas, detaching from instinctive and intellectual to go into superconscious. The greatest challenge facing youth today is the lack of relating to the devotional side of Hinduism. Daily practice, daily vigil, moves us forward spiritually.
