Symbiotic filmmaking at its best where the profound Teachings of Gurudeva come alive with great photography, narrator and the mastery and mystery hand of the editor. The Swamis of Kauai Aadheenam have done it again, bravo!
What a timely release of this Youtube series! At 6 pm Washington DC time yesterday a young lady and I meditated on Lord Siva, and during the whole time my thoughts were focussed on Iraivan Temple, Satguru and the temple grounds, and to wake up and see this youtube this morning is unbelievable. The effect of this youtube is instant inspiration, extreme calmness, and it evokes greater love towards Lord Siva! Makes my heart melt! Thank you Swamis, well done!
This is awe-inspiring – the soothing narration much like the Guru Chronicles audiobook immerses one in the teachings, the high quality video – particularly enjoyed the ariel excerpts of sweet Kauai at the beginning analogous to mountaintop consciousness – adds to the immersive experience. Its brevity means one can watch irrespective of location – from a dash of aloha during a dynamic day or one to contemplate on during sadhana. YouTube is a great medium – the only edition I can suggest (and it is a humble one as these efforts are already enormous) is building this into one of the current or upcoming apps.
One cannot thank the team who selflessly and diligently produced such a wonderful resource – how blessed are the souls who enjoy this immersive experience made through love. Mikka Mahalos. Aum Namah Sivaya.
Really impressive! Adding music and very uplifting pictures and scenes of nature really add to the teachings. In addition the pleasantness of the voice of the speaker and the pace at which he speaks is really good. Displaying pictures of people in the video really enable connection to everyone. The video is very contemporary that it could fit it at any public seminars or a classroom or university class. It is a subtle way of passing over the spiritual teachings to the new generation. Many congrats!
This project is much needed in today’s digital world. Listening and watching the concepts of Siva instills in one’s mind immediately . I love them.
Keep up the good work . Mica Nantri Satguru,Bodhinatha and the swami’s.
After watching this I could not stop thinking about how beautiful and concise this presentation was. I can’t help but think that these short videos would provide a wonderful counterpoint to CNN’s concept of what Hinduism is. Thank you for sharing this.
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."
