“The Himalayan Academy is organising an overnight Youth Retreat for the youth of the Saiva Siddhanta Church Mauritius Mission on December 10th -11th at the Blue House, Trou D’eau Douce, on the east coast of the island. Children of Church members, of arulsishyas and youth of MC Level 3, who are attending secondary schools and university are invited to attend the event. The main focus of the retreat will be on empowering our youth to leadership through good character management as taught by Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami in the new Character Building Workbook.”
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.
