At his afternoon satsang yesterday, Palaniswami shared Gurudeva's sutras on the environment and the duties we all have to do our small part to help with climate change.
Our approached, he offered, is based on what Gurudeva called the " the paired principles of ahimsa (do no harm) and the all-pervasiveness of Divinity." With these two in mind, we naturally want to protect all living things, for Siva is within them completely.
He also shared news of the Hanuman in India, shown here a few months back dwarfing Acharya Arumugaswami.
A beautiful sculpture.
Even the details on the back are excellent. In Hanuman's hand will be placed Iraivan Temple, depicting that he carried it from India to Kauai.
Bodhinatha's Latest Upadesha: "Detachment from Experiences; Importance of Daily Vigil" (May 5, 2013)
All experiences are good experiences, necessary to get us here. Awareness of aspects of ourselves that are constantly changing is a liberating perception, breaking our chains to mundane areas, detaching from instinctive and intellectual to go into superconscious. The greatest challenge facing youth today is the lack of relating to the devotional side of Hinduism. Daily practice, daily vigil, moves us forward spiritually.
