Last week, while the innersearch was up in Kokee, we had a smaller intimate group for our weekly tour. We were all drenched but happy!
With this tour was a remarkable little girl named Tara. Her questions and presence was beyond her years. We couldn’t help feeling a strong connection to her and her father. She loved every inch of Kauai Aadheenam told us she can’t wait to grow up so she can move to Kauai!
Her father told us that some time ago Tara told him that her real father is Shiva. He told us that he was in Sri Lanka at the same time we were on innersearch in India and Sri Lanka with Gurudeva in December1980/1981.
Today the gates opened again to our Public Tour guests. With the Summer holidays upon us we are expecting many “little people”.
A guest told us today that she felt she was in “Pandora” (the land of Avatar) “but this is real!” Here is a cluster of the King of Siam.
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.
