The last events of Bodhinatha’s retreat program in California were conducted today.
Everyone was very inspired by his presentations.
Yoginathaswami’s gave several classes on Sadasiva/Pancha Brahman, which is a core way of envisioning and communing with Lord Siva in Saiva Siddhanta, especially important for the understanding of the Siva Puja
The Land of the Medicine Buddha Retreat Center is a lovely place for these programs.
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.
