Years ago we had a collection of 365 talks by Gurudeva. These were the best of his TAKA upadeshas in answer to Cybercadet questions along with his recordings of Merging with Siva. The RSS feed was to roll-over and start again each year, but it did not. We finally have it working again. For those who are facile with RSS use this URL in your favorite reader to play the latest “episode”
This podcast features short daily episodes, from one to seven minutes long, of talks given by one of the most influential and inspiring spiritual leaders of our time. Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami’s discourses range from deeply esoteric subjects to everyday human concerns, always revealing the enlightened perspective of a Hindu mystical master.

Bodhinatha's Latest Upadeshas: "Not Getting Upset, Viewing Reaction from Higher Faculties" (September 14, 2014)
A measure of how serious we are in making spiritual progress is that we've learned the lesson from experience. Develop the ability to watch the mind think, understand the patterns of emotional action and reaction. Have the sense that you are a divine being to root out imperfections. Becoming upset is a temporary suspension of our higher faculties; transmute the energy into the third eye.

"Eight Features of the Natha Sampradaya" (September 17, 2014)
We have to discover that part of us that is the Self. One of the important benefits of temple worship is it softens the ego. Recognize and love a Being greater than us, building humility. Go to Lord Murugan; His worship strengthens the kundalini. There's a power in learning through listening, shruti, that which is heard. Tradition, sadhana and tapas, informs, inspires, awakens potential.
