Bodhinatha had many darshan meetings with devotees at the hotel during his stay. Here is a very special young man — Arunesh Eswaran, son of Sivaram and Devika. He it the product of a cross-cultural marriage and third generation in Saiva Siddhanta Church on his Mother’s side, being the grandson of Hotranatha and Punita Ajaya in California.
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.
