This concludes a short dynamic phase. The county is working on the reservoir and all our ponds and streams have been shut off. The Koi fish were moved to safe keeping until the water is turned on again. Meanwhile we are taking this opportunity to do some much needed repairs of leaks that will help prevent erosion in the future. Yoginathaswami and Sadhaka Rajanatha are healthy and doing well in their whirlwind visit to India. This is Sadhaka Rajanatha’s first visit to India and he is having a great time there.
The Ganapati Kulam gave their news. The digital edition of Hinduism Today, April 2010, is to be released officially next week. This involves work by the team, getting the PDF ready, recording Bodhinatha’s Publisher’s desk and getting various little pieces in place to push the web site forward to the next issue. Every three years we upgrade computer equipment, so there are lots of boxes arriving. Arumugaswami is getting ready for a month long trip with Bodhinatha to Mauritius and India. Work proceeds on the Parampara book, daily TAKA etc.
Please keep an eye on the right side bar as we catch up missing Bodhinatha talks. Today we posted links to a marvelous upadesh on the transmutation of prana through the chakras as one matures and grows old gracefully.
Don’t miss it!
~~~~~~~~~~~ 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 Tritiya Tithi, Sun One, Tuesday, March 2th.
The blessings of Lord Murugan awaken wisdom which resides in his chakra. "Pray to Lord Murugan to unravel the great mysteries of the universe." When we get emotional we lose touch with our wisdom. Murugan inspires penance to soften karmas and purify the mind, chitta-shuddhi. If you do kavadi in the right spirit, to get the full blessing, have in mind specific misdeeds, apologize to the deity, learn from it, promise to do your best. Visions are still happening. Feeling the energy of the deity is stronger during festivals such as Skanda Shashti.
