It is always a joyous moment when our Satguru arrives home. His trip was certainly a “Dig Vijaya” (Victory Tour) for spreading his marvelous and practical messages on how to follow Hindu dharma.
All the monks gather to greet their Satguru…
Sadhaka Satyanatha performs the padapuja for the arriving holy man.
Jai Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami-ki Jai!
And welcome home to Shanmuganathaswami who has been putting the trip to good use for all kinds of outreach for the mission.
Bodhinatha writes of his last few days:
Om Sivaya, everyone,
August 29th early afternoon flight Chicago to Nashville. Keynote at Nashville Ganesha Temple on “Some Practical Suggestions for Hindu Families and Temples.” Over 100 attended and interest was high in the topic.
August 30th morning a visit to Ingram Periodicals, the national distributor of Hinduism Today to all the newsstands in USA and Canada, to discuss how to improve our copy sales through them.
It was extremely inspring to attend the Guru’s upadesha in Nashville and also to reconnect with Shanmuganathaswami, thank you for all your guidance and blessings. There is always something new to learn and intuit from each upadesha given.
Prostrations To Lord Ganesa! We are so grateful to have had the blessed opportunity to see Satguru on our Island, that he made time to visit us is beyond words.It is beautiful to see the love and joy that awaits his return home.We all need him so much. What a joy to be at his Holy feet. Aum.
The experience of ananda in savikalpa samadhi has to cease before you can have the deeper nirvikalpa samadhi. Agitations of the mind are released by the attainment of shanti in the anahata and vishuddha chakras. Only man can experience Satchidananda, the all pervasiveness of God. Understanding where we are in consciousness. The realization of one's self as a soul is the first stage of Self Realization, then Satchidanada, then Parasiva.
