Our team there has been extremely busy. Bodhinatha’s brief reports detail meetings with swami’s, discussions with Hindus, interview for Hinduism Today with key leaders, morning meditations. Today (the 8th in Australia) is the big day for the Convocation of Hindu Leader who are “unveiling” the Hindu Declaration on Climate change (see below)
~~~~~~~~~~~ END OF PHASE
Today is the last day of our short 4-day phase.
This edition of TAKA will remain posted
over our coming two-day retreat,
until Dasami Tithi, Sun One, Thursday, December 10th.
Bodhinatha continues with his weekly series of commentaries on The Path to Siva. In this past Sun One talk, he elucidates the four key beliefs in Hinduism, the three pillars of Sanatana Dharma and Gurudeva's three stages of faith. Primary to Hinduism is the key belief that God is within each of us. To have a well-rounded understanding and experience of Hinduism, to make spiritual progress, adhyatma vikasha, we need scripture, humility, temple worship, devotion. To fully experience God we need the guru to give the spark for meditation and deeper wisdom.
