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.
One Response to “Bodhinatha, Shanmuganathaswami & Siddhanathaswami attend satsang in Chicago”
Lord Siva is the Supreme Being of the universe, not one of many gods. To Saivites Siva is the supreme being; to Vaishnavites Vishnu is the supreme being. The soul starts with experiencing the world. On one side the soul is pulled by veiling grace toward the world. On the inside the soul is pulled by revealing grace toward God. Resolving karma, maturing in the world, fulfilling dharma, we move toward imperturbability, realization, moksha.
