Keeping Peace Inside Yourself

It's quite a task, finding and keeping peace within yourself. Gurudeva had much to say about it, and here we share one of his simple admonitions:

Keeping Peace Within Yourself

Then the next step unfolds from within most naturally: zero tolerance for disharmonious conditions within our own self. This brings us back to my guru's wisdom: claim the strength to stop being miserable, to stop tolerating turmoil inside yourself. How is this accomplished? We have to boldly affirm, "I will not allow the instinctive mind that I experienced as a child to control me in any way. I will not allow anger to come up. I will not allow jealousy to dominate my thinking and make me feel inferior or superior to someone else. I will not allow fear to permeate my aura."

Aloha Dinner in Sydney is a Grand Success

Our Aloha dinner in Sydney, Australia included a book launch of Guru Chronicles for Australia Mini Mela. The event was held at a hall affiliated with the Durgai Amman Temple. Chandran & Mathini Wigneswaran were our hosts for this visit. They had encouraged many of their family and friends to attend which brought attendance up to 206. Tickets for the dinner were $40 and they raised AUS $8,250 for the Iraivan temple building fund. In addition, a few individuals sponsored the actual costs of the hall rental and the food, so the full amount of AUS $8,260 goes to Iraivan. Additionally, of the 30 copies of The Guru Chronicles we carried with us, 24 or 25 were sold and most of them were signed by Bodhinatha. Some copies of the Jan 2014 Hinduism Today were given out as well. The program included singing Natchitanai, Bharata Natyam, talks by Dr. Nagaratnam (now 88 years old) and Ganga Sivanathan, the Iraivan update video with a book trailer on Guru Chronicles, plus a forty-minute slot for Bodhinatha to present keynotes on Four Yogas, Four Ashramas and a few minutes on The Guru Chronicles.
