A beautiful white kitten with lovely marking recently found it’s way to the Aadheenam. He found himself a niche location under the Siddhidata Kulam office trailer. We called him “Hiranya” or “Snow Bear.”
What to do? We could not send him to the humane society as he would be euthanized. And he had never, ever been hurt or abused by anyone and as such has the most gentle and affectionate manners, completely unafraid of humans. You have to be careful because he will run between your feet as you walk. So, of course we just adopted him. But, we have found it best not to keep male cats inside the buildings. But it is chilly now in Hawaii and it can get very rainy, so the Siddhidata Kulam made this “Hiranya Hotel” — “Snow Bear Lodge” for the new member of our family.
It did not take him long to move into his new home to do what cats do best: sleep 18 hours a day.

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.
