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.
Why aren't we with God Siva? Bondage: anava, karma and maya. The law of karma is teaching us to understand the behavior which is conducive to the unfoldment of the soul. Anava makes us think we're an individual, separate. Through positive experience, use it to accomplish, mature the soul. The sense of a Oneness eventually comes in. "..all are pervaded by love. But there is no all for you alone exist. All are you."
