As we write Bodhinatha and Senthilnathaswami are attending a Krishna Janmashtami celebration in Houston.
Bodhinatha reports on yesterday’s events:
Friday began with an excellent Siva Mrityunjaya Homa at the Midland temple. The priest is Vighnesh Gurukal from Bangalore who served for five years at the Flint Kasi Vishvanath Temple. He met Gurudeva there. This was followed by my presentation on Hindu Tools for Success.
Next a padapuja at the home of Mrunal and Padmaja Patel followed by a short talk.
We went back to the temple in the evening. Senthilnathaswami gave a 20-minute presentation on Hinduism Today. Then I gave one on Passing on Our Hindu Traditions: Will there be a Third generation? We were told both presentations were well received.
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.
