Our Innersearch journalists report on the final day, Day 10, June 21:
We began our last day of Innersearch with a beautiful sunrise meditation on the beach at 5:45 am, a rare opportunity for most of us, therefore inspiring us to make the most out of the moment. The sun rose majestically over the Pacific Ocean, filling us with bright radiant light.
We gathered for an Aloha Breakfast in the Jasmine Ballroom, where each Innersearcher was asked to give a personal testimony on their experiences throughout the past ten days. The emotions were intense as everyone gave soulful, at times tearful, but heartfelt testimonials of their Innersearch, the lessons learned, the joyful moments that we shared with each other and how fondly we look forward to the next Innersearch. Finally the moment arrived where we all reluctantly parted ways, yet each of us knows that although this may be the end of Innersearch 2010, this is only the beginning of our personal Innersearch!

Bodhinatha's Latest Upadeshas: "The Difference in Practice of Theism and Monism" (September 3, 2014)
During a puja we're in Theism, to receive the blessings of the Deity. After a puja we can go within our self in meditation, giving up the idea of an external Deity, Monism. Monistic Theism: Advaita Ishvaravada. Advaita means the Monism; Ishvara means the Theism.
In Shum we use two words that relate to that: shumif and dimfi. First, perfect your Theism. Then become a monist. That's called Saiva Siddhanta; one leads to the other.
