Uma Sivanathan bringing guests for the tour and temple puja today.
Each week our circle of friends and well wishers grows. Some have come before and bring friends and family to see the progress. New comers are inspired and carry a message of peace back to their homes and family. Gurudeva’s vision is truly encircling the world.
Koi were developed from common carp in Japan in the 1820s, and are still very popular there as they are a symbol of love and friendship. Koi are sprinkled all through the Aadheenam’s many pools.
Raj and Geetha Rajendran from Texas and Sukumar and Shanthi Pattnaik from Davis, California. They were very helpful on the tour, even telling our guests how to cook Jackfruit!
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.
