We began a new phase today. It was also tour day and Bodhinatha signed a number of books in the minimela.
Our day began with homa.
Bodhinatha gave a marvelous upadesha today on the importance of realizing that to attain moksha we must resolve all our karmas, and that this means we need to work with life as it comes to us, including our mistakes and not simply wish that everything were quiet so we can meditate.
In our teachings we're both monistic and theistic. In the beliefs of Saivism the idea of the three worlds is the basis and key to understanding temple worship, theism. The inner worlds are there to help you. The essence of the soul is already the same as the essence of God Siva, monism. You just have to find it.
