Banu Devi and Chellappa Deva made their yearly display at Phoenix’s Discover India festival, recently. It is always a success for them and the people who come by their table.
“It is very uplifting for us to do this Siva Thondu, explained Banu Devi, “because a lot of people who have been to Kauai or subscribe to Hinduism Today tell us of their experiences and what a great temple and wonderful magazine it is. And we show them and tell them about the newest publications and monastery events. This year, I informed many people of Bodhinatha’s coming to Phoenix in April, something we are all looking forward to.”

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.
