Bodhinatha and Palaniswami continue their stay in Delhi. Bodhinatha reports on yesterday’s events (the 19th in India)
“Again our day started by attending the Narmada lingam puja, (three-four feet tall) North Indian style worship, along with Shri Sadgurudev Ji Maharaj Gopal Charan Swami. Again next was the morning subrahbatam at the Radha Krishna shrine, a break for breakfast and an abhishekam for Acharya Nimbarka.
After lunch the afternoon talks began. These were televised live, on Asta TV, all the talks, from about 1:30 -- 4:00 pm. My talk was the only one in English. At the end Gopal Charan Swami, in Hindi praised Hinduism Today and our work in Hawaii. We had a darshan session with him at 5 pm and were off to Delhi for the next phase of our mission here in North India.”
~~~~~~~~~~~ END OF PHASE
Today is the last day of our phase.
This edition of TAKA will remain posted
over our coming three-day retreat,
until Tritiya Tithi, Sun One, Tuesday, November 23th.
The blessings of Lord Murugan awaken wisdom which resides in his chakra. "Pray to Lord Murugan to unravel the great mysteries of the universe." When we get emotional we lose touch with our wisdom. Murugan inspires penance to soften karmas and purify the mind, chitta-shuddhi. If you do kavadi in the right spirit, to get the full blessing, have in mind specific misdeeds, apologize to the deity, learn from it, promise to do your best. Visions are still happening. Feeling the energy of the deity is stronger during festivals such as Skanda Shashti.
