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.

Lord Siva is the Supreme Being of the universe, not one of many gods. To Saivites Siva is the supreme being; to Vaishnavites Vishnu is the supreme being. The soul starts with experiencing the world. On one side the soul is pulled by veiling grace toward the world. On the inside the soul is pulled by revealing grace toward God. Resolving karma, maturing in the world, fulfilling dharma, we move toward imperturbability, realization, moksha.
