Monastic Order - Religion of the Now


Bodhinatha shared with visitors in the temple an overview by Gurudeva of the monastic order and its mission. He also spoke of how Hinduism is more centered in the now than most religions, which are more about a certain history, about a person and events in the past, and also about a future. Being in the present, in the eternal now, is important in Hinduism and in Gurudeva's teachings. The Hindu thinks about being in his spiritual consciousness right now. This is the essence of Hinduism, to keep going deeper and deeper into our inner consciousness.

Goodness and mercy, compassion and caring are the intrinsic, inherent or indwelling nature of the soul. Wisdom and pure knowledge, happiness and joy are the intrinsic nature of the soul.
