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.
The three distinct attainments in our philosophy: realization-nirvikalpa samadhi, moksha-liberation and merger-vishvagrasa. Believe in our ability to raise consciousness high and hold it. Every day live in the highest state of consciousness you can. Take on Siva's point of view, see divinity. Experience what's real. Pay attention to that aspect of you which is Siva.
