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.
Hindus believe there is one Truth, we just all don't agree on the name and nature of God. To compare Hinduism with other religions, you need to ask the orthodox practioners what their beliefs are. For example, one Christian minister explained that he believes we are fallen beings, not inherently good and need to be redeemed or face eternal Hell. Hinduism believes the opposite: we are divine beings with instinctive, intellectual and intuitive natures. Everyone will eventually become a spiritual being and attain God realization. That is about as far apart as we can get in beliefs. There is really no way that the two can be compared.
