As we write, Bodhinatha and Shanmuganathswami are in the air, flying home to arrive this evening. In the next few days we will bring more photos of events during their in California.
See our Twitter posts for photos from the big donor appreciation event in Palo Alto, California. Here is a photo from that event. After offering a Vedic chant, Ananth Sivachariar garlands Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami.
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.
