Stepping back in time to Bodhinatha’s recent mission on the east coast, yoginatha has some final photos to share:
“Here we are the home of the Hindu/Jain temple Mr and Mrs. Bhalakia and their friends. He is the president of the temple.”
“Here are sishyas Gaurav, Ripla and Aran Malhotra. They made a 7-hour drive from Chicago to be with Bodhinatha. While with us in Pittsburgh Gaurav didn’t miss the opportunity to drive us around to several events. Little Aran was every happy to be with Bodhinatha and gave us few of his paintings!”
Gurudeva taught us all to see the light in others’ eyes. It is particularly evident in this photo.
Hindus believe there is one Truth, we just all don't agree on the name and nature of God. To compare Hinduism with other religions, you need to ask the orthodox practioners what their beliefs are. For example, one Christian minister explained that he believes we are fallen beings, not inherently good and need to be redeemed or face eternal Hell. Hinduism believes the opposite: we are divine beings with instinctive, intellectual and intuitive natures. Everyone will eventually become a spiritual being and attain God realization. That is about as far apart as we can get in beliefs. There is really no way that the two can be compared.
