Yogi Jivanandanatha is our homa pujari today as we begin a new phase.
Bodhinatha gave a wonderful discourse based on his Tirukkural presentation he made in Singapore, focusing on the issue of back-biting and the understanding that what we react strongly to in others is something present in our own psyche that we need to pay attention to.
Kulapati Easan Katir has come to the Aadheenam for 10 days of Task Force. Kulapati just recently returned from Washington DC where he joined the Hindu American Foundation in an effort to speak to our representatives about Hindu human rights in several countries.
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.
