Bodhinatha and Sadhaka Adinatha are having a powerful time in Canada. Bodhinatha reports today:
“Om Sivaya, everyone,
This morning was the concluding ceremonies of the kumbhabhishekam. On arrival we were soon up in a genie boom 80-60 I believe pouring one kumbha over the tower above Ganesha along with three priests doing all the rest of the pouring and decorating. Then back inside for the frenzied pouring of kumbhas on the towers that were inside the temple and then finally on the murtis in the shrines, returning the shrines back to normal. Then a standard maha abhishekham was performed for all the murtis. Chanting was excellent transporting you into Ganesha’s loka. In the midst of this I gave a short talk introducing The Guru Chronicles. I am not sure of the size of the group perhaps 400. The chief priest is from Colombo and in his daily prayers worships Yogaswami. So there was a special connection with him. He could see this temple as coming from Yogaswami through Gurudeva and therefore was particularly pleased to be the head priest for this ceremony.
Bodhinatha's Latest Upadeshas: "Patanjali's Yoga Sutras - False Knowledge" (June 15, 2014)
Bodhinatha comments on Patanjali Yoga Sutras, Verses 1.5 through 1.12. The restraint of the mental activities of correct knowledge, erroneous knowledge, fantasy, sleep and memory is achieved through practice and detachment. He focuses up the subject of erroneous knowledge and relates Gurudeva's discussion on how to resolve deep seated erroneous conception from Cognizantibility. Hatha yoga balances ida and pingala. Mindfulness and memory relate. Desire is life. Transmute our desire and change our life.
