Bodhinatha and Shanmuganathaswami are in Bali for a few days. Bali is a wonderful source for items we use in our Minimela and the only way to make arrangements is to go there and deal with vendors directly. It also gives Bodhinatha a break from his intense travel schedule and a chance to rest and have darshan in Bali’s unique temples.
~~~~~~~~~~~ END OF PHASE
Today is the last day of our phase.
This edition of TAKA will remain posted
over our coming two-day retreat,
until Dvitiya Tithi, Sun One, Thursday, June 2nd.

The letter "Ya" in the Panchakshara Mantra, Namasivaya, stands for the soul. Bodhinatha uses the Panchakshara Mantra to show how the soul is initially drawn by Siva's veiling grace, which leads the soul to maturity through experience in the world. Then comes Siva's revealing grace. When we've had enough of the world, Siva's grace pulls us toward God. The mantra also has the simple, two-syllable form. Si- Reflecting on God the Transcendent Absolute, Va-God as the All Pervading Consciousness
