Our latest offering is a new uplifting, non-intellectual break for our TAKA viewers: slideshows with music.
Our Pancha Ganapati gift to TAKA viewers is an unexcerpted slide show of about 180 photos from the gilding of iraivan temple. Set to run at 2 second intervals, this show will take about 6 minutes, so be prepared just to sit back and relax, breath deeply and let go of all your cares and soar on the top of Iraivan temple with a lovely Natchintanai song playing in the background. (Assumes your computer will stream mp3 files.)
In Patanjali's comments on the niyamas he speaks on religious action, kriya, bringing about samadhi and attenuating the kleshas. We think we have to be detached from that which we are attracted to but we also need to overcome aversion. It's easier to be finite, to have a past and a future than to be infinite, without past and future, so, we're clinging to life. The kleshas are the root source of karma. Quiet mental activity produced by the kleshas through meditation and achieve santosha, peace of mind. "Men of discrimination see sorrow in all experience."
