There’s a lot of news and photos from Bodhinatha’s activities California today. They are all in the Twitter links below.
Meanwhile at home it is the “JAZZ” Day for Ganapati Kulam, for the January issue of Hinduism Today. That is a name given from the days when we put all the files on an Iomega Jazz cartridge and shipped them to the printer. Today it means that editorial should be complete and all files ready to be proof read before making the PDFs for the printer next phase. JAZZ day is always an intense one for the kulam.
~~~~~~~~~~~ END OF PHASE
Today is the last day of our phase.
This edition of TAKA will remain posted
over our coming three-day retreat,
until Tritiya Tithi, Sun One, Friday, Wednesday November 4th.
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.
