Jai Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami!
Today we celebrate Satguru's 77th Jayanthi. Today Satguru also happens to arrive back at the Aadheenam from his recent trip. This evening Satguru will enjoy a special meal prepared by his monks. Remember to leave your birthday wishes in the comments!
"Without a Satguru all philosophy, knowledge and mantras are fruitless. Him alone the Gods praise who is the Satguru, keeping active what is handed down to him by tradition. Therefore, one should seek with all effort to obtain a preceptor of the unbroken tradition, born of Supreme Siva." Kularnava Tantra
Bodhinatha and Shanmuganathaswami left yesterday for a 13-day trip to San Francisco, Phoenix, Dallas, Midland, TX returning Kauai on 15th.
Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami discusses the Hindu view of Monistic Theism, which says God is transcendent and immanent, eternal and temporal, Being and becoming, Creator and created, Absolute and relative, efficient and material cause.
Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami reads from Lesson 52 of the Himalayan Academy publication “Path To Siva,” discussing how the Hindu home traditionally receives guests.

We've recently received these pictures from Russia, of a delightful gift that Dinanatha and his team presented to Satguru during his stay in Russia (more photos to come). It is a set of Russian Dolls, also known as Matryoshka or Babushka dolls. For those that don't know, they are a set of wooden dolls that all stack inside one another. Traditionally each doll is hand painted, though that's not always the case today. This set has quite the mystical meaning, because within Bodhinatha resides every guru that has come before him.

As you may have noticed our site is still getting through its server upgrade. So for now please enjoy this video from Satguru, discussing how the world is a stage for our own evolution. Aum.
