Mr. Rajnikant B. Acharya and his wife, to Bodhinatha’s left, are visiting from Nairobi, Kenya. Rajnikant is on the building committee of a Siva Temple now under construction in Nairobi. He invited Bodhinatha to be present for the opening ceremonies at the end of next year. He is here with his daughters, grandchildren and son in law who are all living in the USA.
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.
