Last February when Bodhinatha was in Bangalore Sivasri Sundramoorthy Sivachariyar told him his brother-in-law had just opened a temple in Canada. He thought it would be great blessing if Bodhinatha could visit the temple. Here Bodhinatha with Sivasri Chandrashekara Sivachariyar (far left) and other priesst from the Bangalore Padasala. He also started a padasala right in this temple to train priesst and teach religion. He invited Bodhinatha to come on a weekend so that he can organize an event for the temple devotees.
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.
