After several years work, Sivakatirswami has completed the new book of 73-Natchintanai. All songs contain an easy to follow transliteration for those whose first language is not Tamil, along with a literal translation. Rishi Thondunathan is on pilgrimage to Kauai. He was instrumental in proof-reading the book.
He and swami discussed the next phase of a long term project to move the songs forward to the next generation. Completion of this book was phase 1, phase 2 will be promotion, phase 3 will be to document the melodies and put these into notation form, phase 4 will be to make English and other language lyrical versions. Thondunathan made the good suggestion that the best channel to make Natchintanai popular will be through the existing music and dance teachers and their classes. Fans of Yogaswami’s songs, stay tuned for the official release of this first edition in the weeks ahead. The first version is only 50 copies, hand printed and bound here at the Aadheenam and is expected to sell out almost immediately.

Bodhinatha's Latest Upadeshas: "Patanjali's Yoga Sutras - False Knowledge" (June 15, 2014)
Bodhinatha comments on Patanjali Yoga Sutras, Verses 1.5 through 1.12. The restraint of the mental activities of correct knowledge, erroneous knowledge, fantasy, sleep and memory is achieved through practice and detachment. He focuses up the subject of erroneous knowledge and relates Gurudeva's discussion on how to resolve deep seated erroneous conception from Cognizantibility. Hatha yoga balances ida and pingala. Mindfulness and memory relate. Desire is life. Transmute our desire and change our life.
