Today the Siddhidata Kulam gave their report. Yoginathaswami is working hard on documenting in the new maintenance program details of key equipment that his team has to maintain, all the parts and sources. He is also coordinating remotely the Iraivan temple carving work going on in India.
The rest of the team reports that the early planting of summer crops is coming up and we will soon have lots of things like Lady Fingers (okra) and other vegetables. They have also been working on the new upgrade to the front entrance way by harvesting some of our marvelous lumber bamboo for railings.
Bodhinatha continues with his weekly series of commentaries on The Path to Siva. In this past Sun One talk, he elucidates the four key beliefs in Hinduism, the three pillars of Sanatana Dharma and Gurudeva's three stages of faith. Primary to Hinduism is the key belief that God is within each of us. To have a well-rounded understanding and experience of Hinduism, to make spiritual progress, adhyatma vikasha, we need scripture, humility, temple worship, devotion. To fully experience God we need the guru to give the spark for meditation and deeper wisdom.
