Today is historic. The last day of a 39-year project to produce the biographies of our spiritual lineage, seven satgurus. Here is Yogaswami, doing a little writing of his own, his Natchintanai songs.
When one CyberCadet heard this news, she wrote a poem. Let’s call it “My Welcome to The Guru Chronicles.”
We stand and wait
as you prepare
for your stay with us
for, once you come
we won’t let you go!
Holding You in our hands
Reading the message You bear
Feeling the Love and Grace
of Masters before, now and after
Falling at Their Feet
we know what that is like
Holding us close to Their Heart
is what you will now enable
Peace will flow
and Courage and Strength
You will be the oar
on our boats
the wings on our planes
the stick that will part the waves
of this ocean of samsara
We stand and wait
to welcome you into our homes
our hearts are already Yours!
Aum Namah Sivaya Aum!

Happy to see all these wonderful publications manifesting that will further uplift this and next generations. Hail to Biodhinatha and all our dedicated monks in Kauai Aadheenam for producing this masterpiece.
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.
