Gaurang and Darshana Nanavaty visited again today with some friends from Houston. They are full time teachers for the Chinmaya Mission and instrumental in the preparation of courses and books for training teachers. Sannyasin Arumugaswami had a long session with Darshana in which she shared their programs.
It was a privilege to have this chance to get to know some sevaks who have completely dedicated their lives to educating the next generation in Hinduism and for us to be able to strengthen our long-time association with our brothers and sisters of the Chinmaya Mission, a relationship that goes all the way back to Swami Chinmayananda’s first visits to America and his relationship with Gurudeva.
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.
