A wonderful email today for the monastery. It is from a good soul who reflects on the challenges of working with people:
"Sometimes I think almost all adults are crazy. We make things so complicated and make more and more rules to force people to do the right thing, which can never work. Then you find a few people who WANT to do the right thing and working with them is so easy and fun, they don't get caught on the unimportant stuff. The monks have so many things to do, spiritual practices, making your own food, caring for the grounds and still you "have time" to outreach and inspire the world with Hinduism. I believe you are experts in not getting caught in the unimportant stuff."
Bodhinatha's Latest Upadesha: "Detachment from Experiences; Importance of Daily Vigil" (May 5, 2013)
All experiences are good experiences, necessary to get us here. Awareness of aspects of ourselves that are constantly changing is a liberating perception, breaking our chains to mundane areas, detaching from instinctive and intellectual to go into superconscious. The greatest challenge facing youth today is the lack of relating to the devotional side of Hinduism. Daily practice, daily vigil, moves us forward spiritually.
