Bodhinatha's MC lesson on Lord Ganesha...
We had our monthly study Master Course Gathering at the Saiva Dharmasala and the lesson of the day was on Bodhinatha’s slides teaching presentation: “My Fiend Lord Ganesha”.
A nice group attended the session, which lasted for more that two hours where the HA catalyst explained in details the main ideas pertaining “My Fiend Lord Ganesha” and the practical guidelines given by Bodhinatha. Participants gave wonderful testimonies on the Ganesha Milk Miracle. We then had a short guided meditation and shared some progress about the Master Course Study. The next MC session will take place on Sunday April 21st and will be a practical session on Hatha Yoga basics, as taught by our Guru.
In the “My Fiend Lord Ganesha” presentation Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami explains: “Though a few devotees may be blessed with a rare vision, the more common way we experience the Gods and devas is as an uplifting, peaceful, divine energy, or shakti, that radiates out from the image. It is easiest to feel their blessings at the high point of the puja, when the flame is held high, or after the puja in a quiet moment of reflection. The blessings or shakti of Lord Vinayaga is a gentle, soothing force. Such a subtle encounter with the Lord of Obstacles has the power to bring us into the secure consciousness of the muladhara chakra, the force center of memory where Lord Ganesha resides, and thus rise above the lower emotions of fear and anger.”
We share with you a few photos of the participants and slides used in the March session… Aum.
