About 40 people attended Bodhinatha’s satsang at the home of Jigisha Patel in Niles, Illinois. In this photo everyone is watching the 2011-2012 annual video update of the monasteries activities. On the screen is the section on the monastery kitchen renovation. Our portable screen works very well for these small groups.
Here is four-year-old Aran, son of Gaurav and Ripla Malhotra. Last year’s visit to Chicago he was pulling Bodhinatha’s carry-on luggage. Now he has graduated to pushing all the swami’s luggage.

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.
