Today was quite busy at the Aadheenam. Public tour day coupled with a large wedding party pushed the limits of our Mini Mela. Here Bodhinatha is giving advice to the newly weds about how to maintain a beautiful relationship by settling any disputes that arise before you go to sleep at night.
The Bride, Raakhi and her family are from Vancouver Canada. The groom, Ajay and his family are from the Los Angeles area. The Priest is Vinay Chaskar.
The Jonejas family with Shobha, nine years old and Lekha, six years old from San Ramon, Californina.
Mukesh & Seema Garg with their two daughters, Kriti and Nupur. They are from Cupertino, California and had a chance to meet with Bodhinatha personally after the tour.
Blessing a rudraksha mala for our inspired guests.
Ganesha worked his magic today and kept the rain clouds in check.
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."
