Sadasivanathaswami’s Latest Upadeshas -- Mysticism and Religion
Mysticism and Religion (July 11,2017)

To Gurudeva mysticism was like the heart and soul of us and then religion was the body that, you know, gave the heart and the soul some sustainability, some substance that. So he had a strong idea that you need both. And he celebrated very much the idea that in Hinduism we have both.

What Is Bhakti? Bodhinatha’s Latest Talk

Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami

Bodhinatha’s Latest Upadeshas -- Commentaries on Path to Siva
What is Bhakti?, Lesson 28 (June 25,2017)

Gurudeva teaches that in our tradition there is always pure devotion/bhakti for God but it deepens as we progress as a calm, intelligent expression of love. Theism leads to monism. Behold the light of life through meditation. Perceive one light in everything, everyone. We are That when we reach the last stage of wisdom. Experience that God is Love and then you become that Love.

Bodhinatha Speaks on Lord Murugan and Penance

Bodhinatha

Bodhinatha’s Latest Upadeshas -- Who is Lord Murugan, Proper Approach to Penance
Who is Lord Murugan? Path to Siva, Lesson 27, Commentary

Who is Lord Murugan? Path to Siva, Lesson 27, Commentary

The blessings of Lord Murugan awaken wisdom which resides in his chakra. “Pray to Lord Murugan to unravel the great mysteries of the universe.” When we get emotional we lose touch with our wisdom. Murugan inspires penance to soften karmas and purify the mind, chitta-shuddhi. If you do kavadi in the right spirit, to get the full blessing, have in mind specific misdeeds, apologize to the deity, learn from it, promise to do your best. Visions are still happening. Feeling the energy of the deity is stronger during festivals such as Skanda Shashti.

Bodhinatha Comments on Evil, Hell and Sin – The Hindu View

Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami



What About Evil, Hell and Sin, Path to Siva, Lesson 25 (May 20,2017)

Hindus believe in each individual as a soul, a divine being who is inherently good. We all have a threefold nature: instinctive, intellectual, intuitive. Develop the intuitive/spiritual/soul nature with compassion, devotion, penance. Use the intellect to help subdue the instinctive mind. Guilt is not a part of Hinduism. There is no eternal hell. You have a continuity of consciousness when you transition to the inner worlds. There is no devil, but there are mischievous “asuras.”
