This concludes a short dynamic phase. The county is working on the reservoir and all our ponds and streams have been shut off. The Koi fish were moved to safe keeping until the water is turned on again. Meanwhile we are taking this opportunity to do some much needed repairs of leaks that will help prevent erosion in the future. Yoginathaswami and Sadhaka Rajanatha are healthy and doing well in their whirlwind visit to India. This is Sadhaka Rajanatha’s first visit to India and he is having a great time there.
The Ganapati Kulam gave their news. The digital edition of Hinduism Today, April 2010, is to be released officially next week. This involves work by the team, getting the PDF ready, recording Bodhinatha’s Publisher’s desk and getting various little pieces in place to push the web site forward to the next issue. Every three years we upgrade computer equipment, so there are lots of boxes arriving. Arumugaswami is getting ready for a month long trip with Bodhinatha to Mauritius and India. Work proceeds on the Parampara book, daily TAKA etc.
Please keep an eye on the right side bar as we catch up missing Bodhinatha talks. Today we posted links to a marvelous upadesh on the transmutation of prana through the chakras as one matures and grows old gracefully.
Don’t miss it!
~~~~~~~~~~~ END OF PHASE
Today is the last day of our phase.
This edition of TAKA will remain posted
over our coming three-day retreat,
until Tritiya Tithi, Sun One, Tuesday, March 2th.
"Meditation is a long journey, a pilgrimage into the mind itself." In Gurudeva's approach we start meditation with the physical body then get more and more subtle, withdrawing energy into the spine then not utilizing mental activity. Everything we meditate on is actual experience, not something the mind has created. We experience something that's always there, awareness aware of itself. Gurudeva's mystical Natha Language of Shum. Awareness is the witness consciousness of the soul, 'niif.' In the nature of our form of meditation there is a continuity (nalif) from one day to the next.
