Gurudeva will be happy to know that his initiative to “Stop the War in the Home” among his sishya is being carried on. A few days ago, Kulamata Amala Seyon and Kulapati Vel Alahan attended a Domestic Violence Training Conference held here on Kauai.
The Seminar was developed by the Reverend Al Miles. Here he is showing a copy of his book “Domestic Violence. What Every Pastor Needs to Know.”
"Adjust yourself to the realization that you are a divine being, a self-effulgent, radiant being of light."
Jyoti is the Sanskrit word for inner light. To bestow on devotees terms that were more specific, Gurudeva developed the Shum Language of Meditation. In Shum the word for the light that lights up the mind is balikana. During Shum meditation there is an indrawing of forces to realize balikana, a moon-like glow, leading to iftye a deeper kind of inner light which, in turn, leads to milinaka, a sustained iftye which doesn't go away and can be sustained after we've finished our meditation.
