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.
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.
