The Aggarwal and Dhodia families are visiting from Edmonton, Canada. The Aggarwal family (on right) visited here 20 years ago and met our late Gurudeva at that time under a banyan tree. Gurudeva gave an assignment to Mr. Aggarwal to distribute 20 free copies of Dancing with Siva in his area.
They enjoyed talking with Bodhinatha about the Iraivan Temple heading towards completion.
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.
