On the right is Vindhya Persaud is doing a beautiful job of organizing various key functions. With her in the picture are her brother and her father, Pandit Reepu Daman Persaud who fondly remembers his conversations with Gurudeva and Paramacharya Palaniswami at two Global Forums of Spiritual and Parliamentary Leaders on Human Survival in Oxford, England in 1985 and in Moscow in the early 90’s.
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.
