Publisher’s Desk Video: Hinduism, the Original Humanism

Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami reads his editorial from the Apr/May/Jun 2014 edition of Hinduism Today magazine. “A critical examination of secular humanism and Hindu humanism for youth immersed in the academic atheism of college”

Gurudeva Padapuja

"If all the temples were destroyed, the gurus would come forth and rebuild them. If all the scriptures were destroyed, the rishis would reincarnate and rewrite them. If all the gurus, swamis, rishis, sadhus, saints and sages were systematically destroyed, they would take births here and there around the globe and continue as if nothing had ever happened. So secure is the Eternal Truth on the planet, so unshakable, that it forges ahead undaunted through the mouths of many. It forges ahead undaunted through the temples' open doors. It forges ahead undaunted in scriptures now lodged in nearly every library in the world. It forges ahead undaunted, mystically hidden from the unworthy, revealed only to the worthy, who restrain themselves by observing some or all of the yamas and who practice a few niyamas."

This morning during the chirta nakshatra, the monks, along with local members and guests, invoked Gurudeva's light and blessings with an early-morning Padapuja to Gurudeva's black granite tiruvadi in Kadavul Temple. Natyam Nandinatha and Nirvani Nilakanthanatha performed the abhishekam. As usual, Sri Rudram was chanted for the first half, after which the rest of the puja was performed in a blissful silence. Gurudeva's presence was strong as his inspiring and subtle energy filled the hearts and minds of those present.
