We have no photos today from Mauritius, no doubt because everyone is super busy there. Today is the 14th in Mauritius and Bodhinatha is giving his all-day seminar program and the beautiful, modern Vivekananda Center.
Yesterday there was another important Satsang for the Flacq Mission at the home of Kulapati Anba Vaylayten and a number of important initiations were given as sishya advance to Samaya Diksha and Vishesha Diksha.
When we come back to TAKA on Sun One, Bodhinatha and the monks will be in transit again, on their way to a big adventure in India. Although we are headed for a retreat if photos are posted from Mauritius, we will post them here, so stayed tuned.
~~~~~~~~~~~ END OF PHASE
Today is the last day of our phase.
This edition of TAKA will remain posted
over our coming two-day retreat,
until Prathama Tithi, Sun One, Tuesday, March 16th.
Hindus believe there is one Truth, we just all don't agree on the name and nature of God. To compare Hinduism with other religions, you need to ask the orthodox practioners what their beliefs are. For example, one Christian minister explained that he believes we are fallen beings, not inherently good and need to be redeemed or face eternal Hell. Hinduism believes the opposite: we are divine beings with instinctive, intellectual and intuitive natures. Everyone will eventually become a spiritual being and attain God realization. That is about as far apart as we can get in beliefs. There is really no way that the two can be compared.
