Over our two day retreat here, Bodhinatha had an event at which he spoke to a group of businessmen in Kuala Lumpur on the 13th, followed by an event in Singapore. Palaniswami met our sishyas in Klang, Malaysia, and Bodhinatha had satsang with the members. Three vratasishyas took their vows. Today Bodhinatha and Palaniswami are in Bangalore.
For our "Great Departure" we prefer to be at home in a religious, uplifting environment, in a clear minded high state of consciousness, having resolved all differences and fulfilled all obligations. There is nothing to fear: "Death is a blissful, light filled transition." We then get settled in the inner worlds with like-minded people of similar religious beliefs.
