The Three Stages of Faith

The Master Course - Satguru's Insights

Bodhinatha's presentation is based on the Oct/Nov/Dec 2009 Hinduism Today edition and is entitled "The Three Stages of Faith". Faith is central to all religions. However, Hinduism considers that faith is the first step in spiritual practice. Individuals must aim to experience God. We progress from blind faith to conviction bolstered by philosophy, and finally to certainty forged in the fires of personal experience.

Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami presents topics relating to Himalayan Academy's Master Course study program.

Purity, devotion, humility and charity are the four keys to good conduct. Of these, purity is the cardinal virtue. We cultivate purity by thinking, speaking and doing only that which is conceived in compassion for all.
