The Three Stages of Faith

The Master Course - Satguru's Insights

Bodhinatha's presentation is based on the Oct/Nov/Dec 2009 Hinduism Today edition and is entitled "The Three Stages of Faith". Faith is central to all religions. However, Hinduism considers that faith is the first step in spiritual practice. Individuals must aim to experience God. We progress from blind faith to conviction bolstered by philosophy, and finally to certainty forged in the fires of personal experience.

Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami presents topics relating to Himalayan Academy's Master Course study program.

The inner worship is to enjoy God's presence and not rush away, to stay, to sit, to meditate awhile and bask in the shakti, endeavoring to realize the Self within.
