Dr. Narayana Rao and his wife met with Hinduism Today Indian correspondent Rajiv Malik in New Delhi to discuss their collaborations with the monastery.
Each year Palaniswami creates four new graphic AUMs for the covers of Hinduism Today. Today we get a glimpse of his work.
This is a photo from the Big Island from Holly Young. She is an amazing bronze sculptor. We have commissioned her to do our very first bronze. This is a preliminary crafting of it. It is 30 inches long, 18 inches wide and 15 inches high, and is destined to be held in the giant hand of Lord Hanuman when he arrives from India. You will see more of this project as it evolves.
The Hanuman is even bigger than the Dakshinamurthi we have in the gardens!
Today we bring you a special treat. A series of stunning island photos.
That is SO beauty-full. THANK YOU! We are taught that money is ‘that which flows’. Having pictures of water so closely related to the words really helped anchor Gurudeva’s message. What a wonder-full tribute to Gurudeva on Chitra puja – He from whom SO much flows with Love and Grace! Once again, thank you! Aum AUM
Thankyou soo much !!! I was just wondering about credits/debts since two days.. and wondering if its a violation of yama.. and today i have the answer 🙂
Thank you very very much..

Jai Gurudeva !!!
What is Sivatri and the Nature of Nirvikalpa Samadhi
Mahasivaratri: A time of striving to realize Parasiva. In our teachings yoga is the restraint of mental activity (chitta vritti). Nivritti marga-the path of renunciation. Pravritti marga-the path of action or life in worldly society. Ashrama dharma, a mental resting place within the 4 ashramas in life. The day before the new moon, as in monthly Sivaratri, nivritti energy is strong, an excellent time for austerity and meditation. Six Shum words defined related to meditation-withdrawal: kashum, nikashum, shumnikashum, bishumnikashum, abibishumnikashum, haiiaiibishumnikashum. Drawing energy up in to the transcendental Source of energy. Imkaif: Absence of awareness aware of itself. Nonexperience.
