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.
The letter "Ya" in the Panchakshara Mantra, Namasivaya, stands for the soul. Bodhinatha uses the Panchakshara Mantra to show how the soul is initially drawn by Siva's veiling grace, which leads the soul to maturity through experience in the world. Then comes Siva's revealing grace. When we've had enough of the world, Siva's grace pulls us toward God. The mantra also has the simple, two-syllable form. Si- Reflecting on God the Transcendent Absolute, Va-God as the All Pervading Consciousness
