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 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.
