Bodhinatha’s Sun One Upadeshas (May 30th, 2016)


Bodhinatha’s Latest Upadeshas:“Instinctive, Intellectual, Superconscious Mind” (May 30,2016)

The Hindu point of view. Everyone has a three-fold nature: instinctive, intellectual and superconscious. Everyone is a divine being. Everyone has the seed of divinity. See what phase of the mind we’re in and practice controlling it. Once the instinctive mind is under control then we have to deal with the intellect. Temple worship, devotional worship is very helpful. Without God’s grace, God’s blessings, everything coming out from God, we couldn’t do anything.

Be Content While Moving Forward

Today we present to you excerpts from Satguru's Sun One upadesha which he gave in Kadavul Hindu Temple on the morning of February 2, after the Siva homa was finished. Enjoy.

"You can't walk up a mountain straight unless you're a really strong person. You've got to take a winding path up, and we're born somewhere on this path. Say we're half-way. This is a simple example. We're half way up this path. It takes many lives to get all the way to the top. So, what do we want to do? We're not trying to race to the top. We're trying to move forward as much as our karma and dharma permit. We want to move forward and we want to be content in simply moving forward. Even when we move three steps forward.

"But, we want to be content that we move forward. We don't want to be frustrated that we didn't get to the top. That's not understood. Some people frustrate themselves in trying to make too much progress, then they become discontent in the present instead of just accepting everything that is is where you should be.

"We're trying to move forward on the path toward moksha with the consciousness that it usually takes many lives. And we want to be content in that moving forward. We need to be content with however long it'll take us to make it. And as Gurudeva says, ‘enjoy the journey.'"

Satguru’s New Publisher’s Desk

Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami reads his editorial from the July/August/September 2016 edition of Hinduism Today magazine. "It is easy to talk high philosophy in Hinduism, 'man is God,' 'we are divine,' it is easy to say profound things...however to put these principles into practice to the extent that we really are a more spiritual person, that is the challenge. And that, is what we will explore here."

On the Road Again!

Today Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami, Sannyasin Shanmuganathaswami and Sannyasin Siddhanathaswami packed their luggage and headed for the airport. The traveling team is headed to California, Vancouver, Victoria, Chicago and Syracuse on a whirlwind two-week trip. Om Namah Sivaya
