Here is a departure shot of Bodhinatha leaving the Aadheenam a few days ago. He and Senthilnathaswami are doing well. The have spent the last few days at the Hindu Temple anniversary celebrations in San Antonio Texas.
“Om Sivaya Everyone,
Today was the final day of the anniversary celebration. We were at the temple from 11:20 Am to 2:30 PM. Before arriving there we had a stop at Dr. Ramakrishna Rao’s. He is gifting a Ganesha murti to the Honolulu group who wrote to us. We did a puja to for this murthi.
The keynote at the temple was on prayer and meditation. Much larger group in attendance including many youth. The youth seemed to respond particularly well to the presentation.
In our teachings we're both monistic and theistic. In the beliefs of Saivism the idea of the three worlds is the basis and key to understanding temple worship, theism. The inner worlds are there to help you. The essence of the soul is already the same as the essence of God Siva, monism. You just have to find it.
