Kulapati Adi Alahan and Kulamata Asha came to Kauai for their grandson Rohan’s namakarana samskara and to be with their satguru.
Today was Sun Four. The Ganapati Kulam reported on their activities at lunch. Printing for some local charities groups, work on the new Guru Parampara book, Children’s story book, getting caught up on posting Bodhinatha’s upadesha to the web (see a new one today), and lots and lots of preparations for Innersearch Kauai, 2010.
Bodhinatha continues with his weekly series of commentaries on The Path to Siva. In this past Sun One talk, he elucidates the four key beliefs in Hinduism, the three pillars of Sanatana Dharma and Gurudeva's three stages of faith. Primary to Hinduism is the key belief that God is within each of us. To have a well-rounded understanding and experience of Hinduism, to make spiritual progress, adhyatma vikasha, we need scripture, humility, temple worship, devotion. To fully experience God we need the guru to give the spark for meditation and deeper wisdom.
