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: "The Difference in Practice of Theism and Monism" (September 3, 2014)
During a puja we're in Theism, to receive the blessings of the Deity. After a puja we can go within our self in meditation, giving up the idea of an external Deity, Monism. Monistic Theism: Advaita Ishvaravada. Advaita means the Monism; Ishvara means the Theism.
In Shum we use two words that relate to that: shumif and dimfi. First, perfect your Theism. Then become a monist. That's called Saiva Siddhanta; one leads to the other.
