The vibration is very high at the Aadheenam as the auspicious Guru Purnima day approaches. Rajen Manick writes from Mauritius:
I am happy to wish Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami a happy Guru Purnima 2009.
I am really blessed to be always guided by Bodhinatha in my life to fulfill both my family obligations and my seva to our Church.
I have just started learning graphics with photography last week and I am sending Bodhinatha my very first attempt to creative photography using special effects. It is not really perfect but I am happy to created something different with Bodhinatha’s photo and feel inwardly good about this first trial. See photo attached.
Bodhinatha's Latest Upadeshas: "Not Getting Upset, Viewing Reaction from Higher Faculties" (September 14, 2014)
A measure of how serious we are in making spiritual progress is that we've learned the lesson from experience. Develop the ability to watch the mind think, understand the patterns of emotional action and reaction. Have the sense that you are a divine being to root out imperfections. Becoming upset is a temporary suspension of our higher faculties; transmute the energy into the third eye.

"Eight Features of the Natha Sampradaya" (September 17, 2014)
We have to discover that part of us that is the Self. One of the important benefits of temple worship is it softens the ego. Recognize and love a Being greater than us, building humility. Go to Lord Murugan; His worship strengthens the kundalini. There's a power in learning through listening, shruti, that which is heard. Tradition, sadhana and tapas, informs, inspires, awakens potential.
