Valluvan, Thilagarani and daughter Kayshana are here on pilgrimage from Malaysia. They are enrolled Master Course students, looking forward to become formal sishyas of Bodhinatha and Kailasa Parampara.
We come to the end of a long, productive six-day phase. Here Kulapati Deva and Kulamata Gayatri Rajan have darshan with Bodhinatha. Deva has been working on the roof structures for the new art display to be installed on San Marga. Gayatri has been coming and helping out at the temple. They return home tomorrow and Deva will return again in a week to continue his seva.
We are heading into a very powerful three-day full moon retreat with the Maha Ardra Abhishekam for Lord Nataraj on Tuesday, winter solstice, the first day of Pancha Ganapati all converging.
~~~~~~~~~~~ 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 Chaturthi Tithi, Sun One, Friday, December 23th.
Bodhinatha's Latest Upadesha: "Control of Thought, Includes Purifying the Subconscious" (January 14, 2015)
Mechanism for major change in the subconscious mind from an ordinary to a spiritual state. Vasana Daha Tantra to clear suppressed memories. Be observant of what's going on inside. Devotion helps us to have the humility to admit our mistakes, to know at our essence we are a divine being. Refining, purifying the subconscious mind. Changing, restraining the nature of the samskaras.
