On November 19, Bodhinatha met all the enrolled Master Course students and Saivite Hindu Religion catalysts at the Ebony Conference Room at the Link Hotel situated in Cyber City at Ebene. The place was very quiet and cosy and everyone felt comfortable inside during the session. The first session was about two hours and the last part with an interactive questions and answers. Then we had a coffee break and followed a meeting with the SHR catalysts who are at present holding classes all over the island. Bodhinatha talked about the new syllabus and teaching materials under preparation. Bodhinatha felt that it would be a good approach to have parents participate in our SHR classes.
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.
