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 Upadesha: "The Summit of All Religions; Regular Meditation" (February 13, 2015)
Religion has a oneness in mysticism but has major differences in terms of beliefs and practices. Unrelenting effort, working on the outside with our faults and weaknesses, allows us to manifest actual experience as a mystic, intensify our purification. We are perfect on the inside. Condition the mind by practicing meditation daily; hold a meditative vibration, samskara of restraint.
