Today in the Ganapati Kulam Senthilnathaswami and Mayuran are working on digital imagery. Here, Senthilnathaswami is color correcting all the images that will be in our new book on the line of Guru's, "The Guru Chronicles".
This is Gurudeva in India on the 1983 Innersearch speaking at a temple in Tamil Nadu. Mr. Murti, who has since gone to Siva's feet, is translating for the audience. Mr Murti was our Indian liaison officer for several decades. He had amazing executive powers. There was nothing he could not get done. We will always remember him for his dedicated service.
Mayuran is scanning our whole Rajam Art Collection at high resolution. This utterly fantastic collection of art will eventually be available online in our new digital library website.
Much of this art is present in the Trilogy books, and we will show you large sized versions in the days to come.
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.
