We have always felt close to Dada J.P. Vaswani, the spiritual head of Sadhu Vaswani Mission in Pune, India. In the late 1990s he came to Kauai to see Gurudeva, whom he adored. Gurudeva had him address the monks in our guru temple--a very rare privilege. He was later chosen as Hinduism Today’s 2002 Hindu of the Year for the magnificent work he does worldwide. We met with him in Melbourne, interviewed him again for Hinduism Today, and he was just as charming as ever, exuding the love and the basic practical advice that he is known for. He gave a rousing speech at the Convocation of Hindu Spiritual Leaders at the Parliament of the World’s Religions in Melbourne on December 8, declaring that to begin to solve the world’s problems we must stop all killing and raise our children with love.
Sun One, Feb. 16, 2015Understanding keys to the mind and transformation. Kriya, the yoga of action, comprised of tapas, svadhyaya and Ishvara pranayama. Living in the soul nature; attenuating the kleshas. Detaching from the world. Giving up attractions and aversions, limitations, clinging to life, wanting to be finite and ignorant. Ignorance is thrown off when we stop looking outside. Warming up to the idea of being omnipresent and all knowing.
