Riding on the high-tech beam of the latest technology, we are testing something new: posting videos of Bodhinatha’s Sun 1 upadeshas, those that he gives to a small and blessed audience by the homa fire.
It used to be that those in search of the guru’s precious words, words which, our scriptures say, are worth more than gold, had to travel far and wide, for weeks or months, until they reached a faraway mountain or a monumental temple. Times have changed, but the teachings have not. Make a pilgrimage to the lotus of your heart, let go of the clamor of the world, prepare yourself for a moment. Then listen to Bodhinatha’s words, and by seeing him externally, you will connect with him internally — for, as he reminds us, the inner and the outer are two aspects of the same being.
Our traditional audio, more polished than the video version, will be posted normally along with its transcript. There will be improvements on the video quality in the weeks to come, but we would love to know what you think of this new idea. Leave a comment and let us know what you think!
Jai to Bodhinatha, jai to the Kailasa Parampara.
No Responses to “New on TAKA: Video Upadeshas by Bodhinatha”
Yesterday I spent the afternoon in Palo Alto at Skype HQ. An executive explained how deep and intimate video communication is compared with other ways to connect. With video we see the non-verbal cues, the energy of sight is involved and not distracted. Now, this morning, seeing this first Video Upadesh, fits right in. In addition to Bodhinatha’s clear explanations of inner and outer things, the glowing Crystal Lingam is a Presence in Itself. Perhaps something in the lighting: there are many small light flashes on the silver tripundra. Aum.
The video quality is good. I had no problem watching the full video on my iPad without any pause or choppiness. It really felt like being at the lotus feet of Bodhinatha. Thank you very much for this wonderful new addition to TAKA. Aum.
I was just thinking yesterday about seeing the fullfillment of the affirmation “all my needs will always be met” in little daily details. I carried it through this morning and connected the feeling of joy to the reality of my needs being met. I am tongue tied with gratitude for this new feature on TAKA. Jai Ganapati, Jai Satguru Bodhinatha! Jai and Mahalo to the monks of the Kailasa Parampara!!!!
om !!! a todos los monjes pude ver el video muy bien, pero no entiendo el ingles me gustaria que lo subtitularan al espanol todos los videos que emitan asi puedo entender lo que dicen !!!!! se los agradeceria con todo mi corazon !!!om y namaste!!!
It’s not choppy at all. It’s very clear and I could even see the diamond like shine in Satguru’s eyes. The lesson is exactly what I needed to hear at this moment. It feels as if I am there and the 20 minutes went by really quick
Jai Satguru Bodhinatha! So beautiful to see the Sivalinga shining brilliantly . Yes that talk really was for me.Thank you dear Guruji. It was very clear and it was like he was talking just to me in a quiet place. Aum
Beautiful talk and beautiful darshan.. seemed like I was there in Kadavul Temple listening to Satguru ji. Felt great to hear and see Satguru talk…wonderful idea to post such videos and the quality was good too. Thank you!!
Jai Satguru Bodhinatha! Such a beautiful talk. I felt as if I were sitting at your lotus feet hearing your words which seemed to be directed at me.
Thank you to the monks who producd this; it ran smoothly and seamlessly.
Bodhinatha's latest upadesha on the human aura. The human aura is in the astral plane. The human aura has two parts: the outer and inner auras. Clear congestion through a combination of vasana daha tantra and meditation, bringing more spiritual energy into your aura. What you're thinking of always existed before you thought of it. Become more fluid, more detached and move awareness more freely in the mind.
