Denver Trip, Part 2

Following the conference which ended Sunday morning, our two traveling monks got a chance to take a short tour of the Rockies. Rajkumar and Surya took them 12,700 feet up into the mountains. They drove through the Rocky Mountain National Park, up to the highest point accessible by car, were they got out and hiked up through the beautiful rock formations. Any higher and they would have needed oxygen tanks. Still, the thin, cold mountain winds forced them to give their lungs a fresh and healthy expansion.

Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami reads his editorial from the Oct/Nov/Dec 2014 edition of Hinduism Today magazine. "Exploring how following Hindu principles develops the refined character needed to move from anger and fear to lofty states of mind"

September 17th Homa

Today begins a new phase. This six day phase includes our monthly Ashram sadhana day on Sun 2, when the monks band together to clean the Aadheenam. We also have two of our monks leaving for three weeks of travel today.

This morning's havana was attended by our monks and local devotees, who were all pleased to experience to powerful shakti from the sacred flames. Several of our monks chanted Sri Rudram as Yoginathaswami invoked Siva's power through the havana and Bodhinatha burned written prayers to the inner worlds.

Following the final arati, Bodhinatha gave a talk about the power of Parampara and the force behind personal, spoken teachings as opposed to the written word. He read from Gurudeva's Dancing with Siva:

"The Natha Sampradaya has revealed the search for the innermost divine Self, balanced by temple worship, fueled by kundalini yoga, charted by monistic theism, illumined by a potent guru-shishya system, guided by soul-stirring scriptures and awakened by sadhana and tapas. Thus has it given mankind the mechanics for moving forward in evolution."
