After a 9,000 mile sea voyage, Hanuman reach the Kauai shores and was brought up the hill on July 9, 2013. He was carefully taken down from the truck and laid in a display area on the Northwest corner of Iraivan Temple. The elephants arrived on the same truck, eager to get out of their shipping cages and move about. Hanuman would sit here in this spot for over three years. He thought he was waiting to be installed, to go from this on-my-back resting position, to the upright stance for which he was designed. But that was not what happened, as Chapter Three reveals.
"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.
