Pancha Ganapathi rises and expands infinitely at Napali!
Oh Ruler of Heaven & Earth!
Sweet Lord with the elephant ears
Who in sacrifice
Surrendered your beautiful tusk.
Oh great God with a slow gait and a mother’s love.
Guide us in the First World today.
Hold us to the path of Dharma with your mighty noose
That your five radiant shaktis will flow through us freely
Out to the world.
We are infinitely blessed to be among a Living Master and Siva’s men,
the great Souls that surround Him.
Thank you for your presence, patience and example in our lives!
Deva, Amala, & Oma

Bodhinatha's Latest Upadeshas: "Not Getting Upset, Viewing Reaction from Higher Faculties" (September 14, 2014)
A measure of how serious we are in making spiritual progress is that we've learned the lesson from experience. Develop the ability to watch the mind think, understand the patterns of emotional action and reaction. Have the sense that you are a divine being to root out imperfections. Becoming upset is a temporary suspension of our higher faculties; transmute the energy into the third eye.

"Eight Features of the Natha Sampradaya" (September 17, 2014)
We have to discover that part of us that is the Self. One of the important benefits of temple worship is it softens the ego. Recognize and love a Being greater than us, building humility. Go to Lord Murugan; His worship strengthens the kundalini. There's a power in learning through listening, shruti, that which is heard. Tradition, sadhana and tapas, informs, inspires, awakens potential.
