Today the Ganapati Kulam shared news on their activities. They have completed the final proofreading and corrections on the January/February/March issue of Hinduism Today, and the magazine PDF files have been sent to the printer in Kansas City, Missouri. It is another fabulous, beautiful, rich, unique issue of the world’s top Hindu publication.
On other fronts, Paramacharya Palaniswami and Sannyasin Senthilnathaswami are working very hard on advance preparations for their trip to Australia when they will be accompanying Bodhinatha for the Parliament of the World’s Religions in Melbourne, December 3-9.
Sadhaka Satyanatha is working on a special project that has been in the works for several years and is finally coming to fruition. This is the creation of “pagers” covering Hindu festivals that can be used in their finished form by newspapers across the country. We will be hearing more about that in the days ahead.
Anticipation of the Mahasamadhi Observances next week are high, and pilgrims have already begun to arrive.
Bodhinatha's Latest Upadeshas: "Not Getting Upset, Viewing Reaction from Higher Faculties" (September 14, 2014)
A measure of how serious we are in making spiritual progress is that we've learned the lesson from experience. Develop the ability to watch the mind think, understand the patterns of emotional action and reaction. Have the sense that you are a divine being to root out imperfections. Becoming upset is a temporary suspension of our higher faculties; transmute the energy into the third eye.

"Eight Features of the Natha Sampradaya" (September 17, 2014)
We have to discover that part of us that is the Self. One of the important benefits of temple worship is it softens the ego. Recognize and love a Being greater than us, building humility. Go to Lord Murugan; His worship strengthens the kundalini. There's a power in learning through listening, shruti, that which is heard. Tradition, sadhana and tapas, informs, inspires, awakens potential.
