This was a short by dynamic phase at Kauai Aadheenam and we are headed into another three-day retreat. The Ganapati Kulam reported on their work today. The major focus of the team is work on the festival pagers. These are full tabloid pages, one for each major Hindu festival, which will be distributed to the mainstream media for republication. Imagine the Los Angeles Times running a full page on Maha Sivaratri, or Diwali (Deepavali)! That’s our goal.
This content will also be re-formatted for the next issue of Hinduism Today, so you will all get to see it in our April issue.
~~~~~~~~~~~ END OF PHASE
Today is the last day of our phase.
This edition of TAKA will remain posted
over our coming three-day retreat,
until Dasami Tithi, Sun One, Saturday, January 2nd
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.
