It is the end of a short four-day phase. The Ganapati Kulam gave their report today. There has been a lot of focus this phase on the upgrade of our Himalayan Academy site that will be coming in the next few months. Thanks to the generosity of those who donated to the Digital Dharma Drive we will be able to move our web site and offerings to a new level.
We are in the planning stages now, focusing first on making all our existing resource more available and more easily accessible to our viewers. We will also be using a dynamic page assembly system and “opening up” sections of the web page to allow full horizontal use of the “canvas” for video, slideshows and large photos. Stay tuned.
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.
