Every year, for Mahasamadhi, we prepare a gift to both Gurudeva and his devotees. This year one of the gifts was a jewel of a book, straight from the inner planes.
Using text from the upcoming biography of seven of the Kailasa Parampara gurus, we assembled beautiful art and never-before-seen photos to create a loving tribute to our Satguru.
This is a photo of Gurudeva after he had just returned to America, Yogaswami's slap on his back still resonating in all three worlds. See a wonderful slideshow below. Jai Gurudeva! We thank you with all our heart.
Hindus believe there is one Truth, we just all don't agree on the name and nature of God. To compare Hinduism with other religions, you need to ask the orthodox practioners what their beliefs are. For example, one Christian minister explained that he believes we are fallen beings, not inherently good and need to be redeemed or face eternal Hell. Hinduism believes the opposite: we are divine beings with instinctive, intellectual and intuitive natures. Everyone will eventually become a spiritual being and attain God realization. That is about as far apart as we can get in beliefs. There is really no way that the two can be compared.
