Brahmachari Dinanatha is from Moscow. He met Gurudeva in St. Petersburg and considers Gurudeva his diksha guru. Dinanatha runs a travel business but has been a Brahmachari for 20 years and has dedicated his life to Saivism. He says that the Russian edition of Dancing with Siva, is for him “like shakitpat.”
He came to Kauai to be in touch with all the swamis here and Bodhinatha and get a renewed vision for future life in service to Siva and spreading Gurudeva’s teachings in Russia. He returns with new goals to get Dancing with Siva re-printed (it is out of print and there is a very high demand for copies) and Merging with Siva also, and possibly even one day, a Russian edition of Hinduism Today.
Dharma is religious patterns which when followed promote the wellbeing of the individual, the family and society. Patterns so that the soul matures and gets closer to God, closer to realizing the Divinity within. Dharma is: "The orderly fulfillment of an inherent nature or destiny," working on instinctive, intellectual and intuitive natures. Destiny is fixed: Realization. Personal dharma, "your own perfect pattern in life", is different for the sannyasin and the householder.
