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.
Focus on being a soul, not the body, mind and emotions. When we think of ourselves as a soul we're able to move forward and get closer and closer to Siva. That's the whole idea of Saiva Siddhanta. A negative self-concept is an obstacle. We can change our self-concept through applying Gurudeva's teachings, affirming every day that we are a divine being. Vasana daha tantra: Going back and understanding experiences; clearing up the reactions to the past.
