It is the end of our phase and a dynamic phase it was indeed. Hinduism Today July issue is off to the printer in Missouri. It is another stunning issue. The three feature stories: Rites of Passage in Nepal, Insight: Hindu Healing, Mauritius Hindu Renaissance are visual feasts and remarkable accounts that convey the richness and power of our ancient faith! Hinduism Today, Tomorrow and Forever!

Bodhinatha's Latest Upadeshas: "Not Getting Upset, Viewing Reaction from Higher Faculties" (September 14, 2014)
A measure of how serious we are in making spiritual progress is that we've learned the lesson from experience. Develop the ability to watch the mind think, understand the patterns of emotional action and reaction. Have the sense that you are a divine being to root out imperfections. Becoming upset is a temporary suspension of our higher faculties; transmute the energy into the third eye.

"Eight Features of the Natha Sampradaya" (September 17, 2014)
We have to discover that part of us that is the Self. One of the important benefits of temple worship is it softens the ego. Recognize and love a Being greater than us, building humility. Go to Lord Murugan; His worship strengthens the kundalini. There's a power in learning through listening, shruti, that which is heard. Tradition, sadhana and tapas, informs, inspires, awakens potential.
