Here is Vel on his last day. He gave a rousing speech to thank Gurudeva and all the monks. Yogi Jothinatha translated into English. Vel called from Paris today where he is visiting his brother before going home. He said: “I can’t believe how cold it is here and how many pieces of clothing people wear!”
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.
