We began a new phase today with an uplifting homa.
Yogi Jivanandanatha performs the homa today.
We are on a 5-day count down now as Bodhinatha, Paramacharya Palaniswami and Sannyasin Senthilnathaswami are 100% focused on getting prepared for their trip to Australia for the Parliament of the World Religions.
Another thing for everyone to note: our fall Sadhu Paksha begins on December 1st, the day that Bodhinatha departs. This means there will be no homa the following Sun One.
Bodhinatha gave a marvelous upadesha/commentary on Gurudeva’s lesson on the human aura today, explaining how emotions can produce colors in the aura, but that Gurudeva also gave us tools to use colors to change our emotions.

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.
