Stepping back in time to November's Mahasamadhi events, we had two Natchintanai Bhajan Workshops for all the pilgrims with Brahmanathaswami. Everyone is very inspired to be singing the praises of God, Gods and Guru. The goal is to bring back "singing for the common devotee" and not be worried too much about the music but focus more on memorizing the songs, learning their meaning and having the courage to sing regardless of your skill level. Singing to the Gods is the primary Hindu traditional expression of bhakti and with the rise of radio, CD's and "professionals" we all stopped singing and we just listen. Amazingly some of our devotees said they did sing years ago, but have long since stopped.
Our goal is to change all that and to re-integrate song into our personal lives as a powerful sadhana, just as it was for Siva Yogaswami himself and to empower everyone to participate and lead the group. Our motto is "Everyone can sing!" We are also developing a digital library of songs at all levels that can later be incorporated into our educational programs for children and youth.
We have testimony from one participant. "Thanks to the workshop, for the first time I had the courage to sing to Siva in Kadavul! And when I went home I led bhajan for over 100 people in our temple."
Bodhinatha's latest upadesha on the human aura. The human aura is in the astral plane. The human aura has two parts: the outer and inner auras. Clear congestion through a combination of vasana daha tantra and meditation, bringing more spiritual energy into your aura. What you're thinking of always existed before you thought of it. Become more fluid, more detached and move awareness more freely in the mind.
