The world religions class of our local Island School paid a visit this morning as part of their current Hinduism studies. Deva Seyon took them on a tour out to Iraivan Temple, then they met Bodhinatha where he answered some basic questions such as how Hinduism looks at heaven and hell.
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.
