We continue our retrospective on Bodhinatha’s mission as he moves to Southern California.
There is much to celebrate when we are on the spiritual path, not the least of which is that we miraculously discovered the spiritual path in the first place. For those not yet connecting with the Tweets on TAKA, we share this photo taken by Greg Rogers during the pada puja in Carlsbad, California a couple of days back. This and other photos can be found under the "Monastery Twitter Updates" on TAKA. It's all part of the new ability of the monks to send updates of Bodhinatha's travels along with photos right from their iPhone, no matter where they are. If you click on the yfrog.com links in a Tweet you will see the photo.
"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."
