On May 29, 2010 Bodhinatha gave a seminar presentation entitled “Seeing God & Tapping Your Intuition.” The venue was the Scott Road Sri Kandaswamy Temple in Kuala Lumpur from 7:00pm to 9:45pm. The seminar was free. Over 500 attended the event and book launch of “Gurudeva's Spiritual Visions.”
In the seminar Bodhinatha used examples of how his preceptor, Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami (affectionately known as Gurudeva), used intuition as a major tool for making important decisions and seeking inner knowledge. He presented ways to identify and use our own intuition to help make the right choices and decisions in life.
Some of these examples were derived from Bodhinatha's latest publication, Gurudeva's Spiritual Visions, which was officially launched at the seminar. This wonderful book covers fourteen of Gurudeva's great mystical visions of God Siva, Lord Ganesha and Lord Muruga. The book is available here…
Bodhinatha gave vibuthi to all those present after the seminar. He also signed many books, including 135 of Gurudeva's Spiritual Visions. Here Bodhinatha blesses a small murthi of Gurudeva. Kulapati Balu Sivaceyon (center) stands by and assists.
The procession of devotees coming forward for vibuthi prashadam went past midnight. We thank all of those who participated in making the event a grand success.
Focus on being a soul, not the body, mind and emotions. When we think of ourselves as a soul we're able to move forward and get closer and closer to Siva. That's the whole idea of Saiva Siddhanta. A negative self-concept is an obstacle. We can change our self-concept through applying Gurudeva's teachings, affirming every day that we are a divine being.
