Bodhinatha and Shanmuganathswami left very early this morning for Singapore and Malaysia He will be holding a seminar for the public at the Kandasamy Temple in Malaysia on the 28th and then a retreat for sishya and students on the June 3rd.
The event at the temple will also feature the release of the two new children’s story books on Self-Discipline and Religious Life (Yamas and Niyamas).
Dharma is religious patterns which when followed promote the wellbeing of the individual, the family and society. Patterns so that the soul matures and gets closer to God, closer to realizing the Divinity within. Dharma is: "The orderly fulfillment of an inherent nature or destiny," working on instinctive, intellectual and intuitive natures. Destiny is fixed: Realization. Personal dharma, "your own perfect pattern in life", is different for the sannyasin and the householder.
