It is the end of the phase and early tomorrow morning the swamis will hold a highly auspicious ceremony at 3:30 AM in the morning before Bodhinatha leaves for Malaysia with Shanmuganathaswami. Tomorrow is the holy day of Vaikasi Vishakam. The full moon in the constellation of Vishakam. It is a powerful day for meditation, initiations and communications between all three worlds. Tune in with us!
We will be going on a 3 day retreat but we will still be posting some photos tomorrow of auspicious new beginning as we bring another nameless sadhu onto the path of sannyas.
~~~~~~~~~~~ END OF PHASE
Today is the last day of our phase.
This edition of TAKA will remain posted
over our coming three-day retreat,
until Dvitya Tithi, Sun One, Saturday, May 29th.
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.
