Kumeraintharen has followed us on TAKA for quite some time and dreamed of performing abhishekam to our Narmada Lingam. He briefly met Satguru Bodhinatha in Kuala Lumpur around ten years ago at a Tirumurai competition. He is interested to become a formal sishya.
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.
