Bodhinatha’s mission in Mauritius is over and he is flying over the Atlantic to Washington D.C. He and Shanmuganathswami stopped in Dubai on the way through. He writes:
“Landed in Dubai about 4 AM and the temperature was already almost 100 F! Picked up by long time Iraivan donor Anil Kumar, who is from Kerala, who took us to his home for breakfast, followed by a drive about Dubai seeing the major districts. Checked into our hotel late in the morning. 5 PM left again with Anil to go to the top of Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world which is next to the biggest mall in the world which is next to the biggest etc. In other words, Dubai likes to have the biggest of everything.”

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.
