Drs. Nipank and Leena Shroff, and Drs. Nalin and Kamal Tolia made their first visit to Kauai. They stayed with sishyas Mrunal and Padmaja Patel family. They are all from Midland, Texas and founding members of the Hindu temple there.
Amey Deosthali returned to Kauai, this time bringing his family guru, Sri Vidya Gurudev, Shri Shriniwasji Katkar (center in photo.)
Sri Gurudev is in the Sri Vidya tradition and Bodhinatha gifted him a copy of a new English translation of a Sri Vidya scripture. Sri Gurudev said that he read some of our late Gurudeva’s teachings ten years ago and made a plan to visit one day.
One Response to “Pilgrims Texas Have Darshan with Bodhinatha”
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.
