Our young hired man, Jonathan Anderson has turned out to have a natural talent and his slate tile work on our walks looks like it has been done by an artisan with years of experience.
It is takes an artistic eye for the design, a strong body for the rigorous work and a conscientious attitude to do the right job all the way through. Every day he lays down another 20-30 square feet of tile. Great job Jonathan! Thank you for your dedication to doing the best you can do.
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.
