In the Bethesda area, near Washington D.C. a group of Hindus are studying Gurudeva’s teachings with Bodhinatha’s guidance. They receive materials from the Aadheenam for their studies.
One of the satsang members writes: “The Silver Vel Satsang is an organization based in the Washington metropolitan area dedicated to sharing and spreading Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami’s (Gurudeva’s) teachings. In addition, the Satsang is currently working on several fundraising projects for the temple.”
Here the Silver Vel Satsang devotees are reading the Inspired Talk on “The Spiritual Perspective of Work” that Satguru Bodhinatha sent to the Silver Vel Satsang before a group discussion.

There is a continuity between the dominant states of consciousness you are in at the time of death and what you experience after death. The goal is to aim for a higher world. When the momentum winds down that's when we are reborn. We function in about three chakras and from that group we can go up or down. Closing off the lower chakras is the work that needs to be done, it can only be done in a physical body. Keep up regular sadhana, japa, worship and working within oneself.
