We're please to introduce Trey, our newest taskforcer. Trey arrived a few days ago and he is here at the Aadheenam for 6 months, learning what it's like to be a monk because he is interested in monastic life. He is visiting here from the mainland and is thoroughly enjoying his first encounter with a sub-tropic environment. It also happens to be Trey's birthday. So today we're wishing Trey a happy birthday!
"If you are a king, will you have contentment? If you are a beggar, will you have contentment? Whatever your walk in life may be, you will only have contentment through knowing yourself by yourself."
- Satguru Siva Yogaswami
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.
