We have been having some sublime and inner days recent as the astrology is highly conducive to meditation. Today was Sun One. Bodhinatha gave a remarkable upadesha on Gurudeva teachings about transmuting prana and how this is done through different stages of life. Stay tuned for it will be posted eventually.

"Stand strong for Saivism." The nature of life for Saivites is to turn work into worship, to turn the secular into the sacred. Each day give a little extra warmth, humanness and upliftment to others. Every day is a holy day, all day long. We want to follow our religion even in our dreams. If we help someone, we're worshiping. Wherever we are, that's a place of worship. "To the Saivite Hindu all of life is sacred. All of life is religion."
