With the water ways dry now is the time for check out the edges around the pool new the edge of the pali.
Sadhaka Nilakantha is opening up the space between the side walk and the pool edge. Underneath we are finding a lot of open spaces around the pool which is really just like a thin bowl sitting in space as erosion has removed soil from underneath it. Now is the time to fix this.
At the front of the Aadheenam we are preparing to install the new entrance. For now a deep trench and foundation has been poured and it must cure for some time before we put the heavy stone arch in place. In the meantime we are making a bridge over that area.
Sadhaka Tejadeva and Sadhaka Rajanatha are working on bamboo safety railings for this temporary installation.
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.
