Yesterday Bodhinatha flew to California, over night by the airport and then a morning flight today to Texas.
He is traveling with Senthilnathaswami. They will be presenting at the Hindu Students Association Emerging Chakra leader’s retreat this weekend, staying the week in Dallas and then joining the general membership for the HSA Gateway students’ retreat next weekend, flying home on Friday the 8th.
Dharma is religious patterns which when followed promote the wellbeing of the individual, the family and society. Patterns so that the soul matures and gets closer to God, closer to realizing the Divinity within. Dharma is: "The orderly fulfillment of an inherent nature or destiny," working on instinctive, intellectual and intuitive natures. Destiny is fixed: Realization. Personal dharma, "your own perfect pattern in life", is different for the sannyasin and the householder.
