~~~~~~~~~~~ END OF PHASE
Today is the last day of our phase.
This edition of TAKA will remain posted
over our coming two-day retreat,
until Dasami Tithi, Sun One, Wednesday, December 29th.
Venkat and Hema Devraj are on their first visit to Kauai from Colorado, USA. They enjoyed asking Bodhinatha metaphysical questions about Advaita. They study Ramana Maharishi’s teachings and also obtained our Master Course trilogy the other day.
Venkat and Hema visit the Svayambhu Sivalingam at the end of San Marga path. It is the site of Gurudeva’s Siva vision which started the Iraivan Temple process.
Iccha , Kriya and Jnana Shakti: the pattern of life. Muruga's Vel is Jnana Shakti. We can always use more of the power of wisdom, Jnana Shakti. The power of desire, Iccha Shakti. If it comes up: "I'm not perfect as I'm supposed to be," wisdom allows us to move on, learn, and come into a more refined pattern of behavior.
