Senthilnathaswami is focused on the quarterly release of the April issue of Hinduism Today on our website (see www.hinduismtoday.com), on a hardware refresh involving our computer monitors, preparations for an upcoming trip with Bodhinatha to Texas, development of ebook versions of the Master Course Trilogy and other projects. Sadhaka Satyanatha is working on a marvelous feature story for the next issue of Hinduism Today which is focused on India’s World Heritage Sites.
We also had several meetings continuing the planning and design discussions for the Himalayan Academy web site upgrade and renovation.
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.
