Just off the plane, yesterday, Bodhinatha returns to His relentless service and attention to every detail at the Aadheenam. What a blessing for our guests! Here he is signing books for someone who came on the tour today.
~~~~~~~~~~~ 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, Friday, February 12th.
Kulapati Deva Seyon’s reports:
“Today’s tour guests walking deep into botanical wonderment. We heard one guest say. “We are not in Kansas anymore!”
This “parade of souls” is being watched from deep within the inner worlds.
A few simple prayers to the Great Tusker and the skies wax clear and bright. It a big group today.
Isani Alahan puts in many hours of karma yoga every week in our Mini Mela. Today, Valli Alahan is here as well, helping with the big influx after the public tour.
The experience of ananda in savikalpa samadhi has to cease before you can have the deeper nirvikalpa samadhi. Agitations of the mind are released by the attainment of shanti in the anahata and vishuddha chakras. Only man can experience Satchidananda, the all pervasiveness of God. Understanding where we are in consciousness. The realization of one's self as a soul is the first stage of Self Realization, then Satchidanada, then Parasiva.
