Ending the Phase

Aum Namah Sivaya

Today ends our week. Our monks now head into a two day retreat, after which begins their observance of Sadhu Paksha. See you in a few days!

"Listen, while I tell you the Path to Liberation-- Truth, patience, calmness and discipline of self;
Discrimination between the eternal
And the passing;
Devotion to the humble servants of the Lord; Rising in the early morning
And bathing before daybreak;
Repeating in the way prescribed
The flawless Letters Five; Worshipping the Guru's Feet; Applying Holy Ash;
Eating but when hungry;
With the whole heart giving praise;
Studying the Shastras; seeing others as oneself; Severing attachment to all property and wealth; Speaking with fit courtesy; avoiding argument; Driving from the mind
All thought of family and caste;
Being ever free of the smallest like or dislike; Living and abiding beneath
The Lord's Eternal Feet."
