Our monthly July Ganesha Homa at the Spiritual Park… here the huge homa pit through which are sent thousands of letters into the inner worlds requesting help from the "devas" or angels beings under the guidance of Lord Ganapati.
As usual every single space accommodates devotees inside the Mandapam.
Outside the huge crowd is a common feature now…

Bodhinatha continues with his weekly series of commentaries on The Path to Siva. In this past Sun One talk, he elucidates the four key beliefs in Hinduism, the three pillars of Sanatana Dharma and Gurudeva's three stages of faith. Primary to Hinduism is the key belief that God is within each of us. To have a well-rounded understanding and experience of Hinduism, to make spiritual progress, adhyatma vikasha, we need scripture, humility, temple worship, devotion. To fully experience God we need the guru to give the spark for meditation and deeper wisdom.
