Bodhinatha and the team report smooth sailing, arriving safely in Singapore. Saravananathaswami writes:
We’re now in Singapore airport waiting to fly to Kuala Lumpur for one night, then on to Mauritius.
While in Honolulu waiting to depart for Tokyo, one of the Chinese Asian Pacific Economic Conference delegates from Beijing came over and chatted with us to learn more about our rudraksha beads and what kind of yoga we do. He said that many people in China are learning hatha yoga, while only a handful are learning about the other aspects of yoga.
Lord Siva is the Supreme Being of the universe, not one of many gods. To Saivites Siva is the supreme being; to Vaishnavites Vishnu is the supreme being. The soul starts with experiencing the world. On one side the soul is pulled by veiling grace toward the world. On the inside the soul is pulled by revealing grace toward God. Resolving karma, maturing in the world, fulfilling dharma, we move toward imperturbability, realization, moksha.
