Thanks a million Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami and Shanmuganathaswami for the wonderful and unforgetable moments in Malaysia, especially, the seminar and Retreat at Alang Sedayu jungle logde! We enjoyed and basked immensely in your presence!! Jai Kailasa Parampara!!
It was a great mini Innersearch. What an experience. All of us felt it. Some of us hugged as we left Alang Sedayu. Some wanted to start the formal study of the Mastercourse trilogy. A life changing experience in Alang Sedayu retreat. All this thanks to our Satguru & the entire Kailasa Parampara. Jai Gurudeva, Jai Bodhinatha.
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."
