We began a new, and very busy phase today. Bodhinatha gave a great talk on the Self today… stay tuned for this in the days ahead.
Bodhinatha and Shanmuganathaswami leave for their trip to Guyana, Trinidad and points East on Sun Three.
Sadhu Paksha also begins on Sun 3 and the monastery will be closed to visitors and public tours. The monks change their early morning sadhana routine to “merge with nature” instead of a formal meditation.
"Stand strong for Saivism." The nature of life for Saivites is to turn work into worship, to turn the secular into the sacred. Each day give a little extra warmth, humanness and upliftment to others. Every day is a holy day, all day long. We want to follow our religion even in our dreams. If we help someone, we're worshiping. Wherever we are, that's a place of worship. "To the Saivite Hindu all of life is sacred. All of life is religion."
