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.
Key concepts: Naalupadasaivam: "A Saiva doctrine that the initiate should pass successively through charya, kriya, yoga and jnana stages and thence obtain moksha." The charya pada, the dasa marga, path of servitude. Sharing the world of God. The kriya pada, satputra marga, true son's way. Nearness to God. The yoga pada, sakha marga, way of the friend, experiencing inner light, sharing the superconscious mind. We talk to God. The jnana pada, san marga, sayujya patavi, union with God. There is no difference between Siva and the soul. God is our dearest Beloved. The three types of temples provide training and experience leading to worship and meditation in the Atma kovil.
