Gaurang and Darshana Nanavaty met with Bodhinatha today. They discussed collaborating on educational programs for youth and the Nanavaty’s described the Hindu community in Texas which has grown to the point where many temples are needed not to accomodate the community’s needs.
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.
