Special guests, Dr. Hiranya Gowda, and his wife from Nashville, Tennessee. They are long-time supporters of Iraivan and Hinduism Today. They have been especially strong donors to the Hinduism Today distribution fund, giving away thousands of free copies to others through the years including subscriptions for readers in India. Dr. Gowda believe Hinduism Todayh is a force to make people more spiritual and to give them an in-depth understanding of their faith.
Another wonderfully incisive talk by Bodhinatha. Inspired by his visit to Niagra Falls, he reads from Gurudeva’s “River of Life” and delivers a lucid bhashya on the nature of attachments and letting go.
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.
