On Thursday, March 31, we drove east from Fort Worth, Texas, to Shreveport, Louisiana, for a visit at the request of Manohar and Barathy Manchandia. The drive was beautiful, for Louisiana is a marvelously forested state. The Manchandia home is perched right on Cross Lake. They have their own dock! We arrived just before lunch, so there was much conversation in a room overlooking the lake before we ate.
The same evening, Bodhinatha was the honored guest at the Sadhu Vaswani Hindu Temple and Cultural Center, with an attendance of about 60-70. He gave a presentation on Yoga, Meditation and Enlightenment that was quite well received.
This is a brand new facility, quite well outfitted.
Bodhinatha answered lots of questions from the audience at the end of the talk and afterward during dinner.
Don't let down. Success comes with consistency of conduct. Improve and control our mind and behavior standards twenty-four hours a day. Monistic Theism, our tradition, is a dual approach. Worshiping God on the outside; claiming and realizing God on the inside. Going deep within to find That which does not change. The path of Saivism: "Bhakti-raja-siddha yoga leading to oneness."
