Today was our monthly Ashram Sadhana day. Monks were out cleaning, repairing and maintaining — keeping up the physical environment, which, in our tropical jungle environment, is an on-going challenge.
The Siddhidata Kulam (“SK”) gave their report today. It’s amazing how much they do. Today’s report included a long list of work and repairs done on vehicles, laundry driers, showers, fences, ditch system.
Thanks to the SK for keeping everything running for all the rest of us!
Bodhinatha continues with his weekly series of commentaries on The Path to Siva. In this past Sun One talk, he elucidates the four key beliefs in Hinduism, the three pillars of Sanatana Dharma and Gurudeva's three stages of faith. Primary to Hinduism is the key belief that God is within each of us. To have a well-rounded understanding and experience of Hinduism, to make spiritual progress, adhyatma vikasha, we need scripture, humility, temple worship, devotion. To fully experience God we need the guru to give the spark for meditation and deeper wisdom.
