With the conclusion of Sadhu Paksha and Bodhinatha’s return from Asia visitors are again blessed with personal darshan and book signing after our weekly tour.
George Bonaros is here from San Diego. He is originally from Ecuador and brought both his parents to Kauai Aadheenam. He had a vision of Gurudeva just before he came and asked Bodhinatha “How do I honor Lord Ganesha?” Bodhinatha is checking out the new bell he picked out for his puja along with his new book “Loving Ganesha”. His mother was telling us that ancient icons have been unearthed close to her village that look like Siva Nataraja with his foot held high in a dance pose.
The holiday season will soon bring hundreds of guests to the Aadheenam. Wailua members are preparing for the many Hindu families which are free to travel with their children now as schools across the country begin to close.
Hindus believe in each individual as a soul, a divine being who is inherently good. We all have a threefold nature: instinctive, intellectual, intuitive. Develop the intuitive/spiritual/soul nature with compassion, devotion, penance. Use the intellect to help subdue the instinctive mind. Guilt is not a part of Hinduism. There is no eternal hell. You have a continuity of consciousness when you transition to the inner worlds. There is no devil, but there are mischievous "asuras."
