I really appreciate and enjoy the daily description of Kauai Aadheenam events and pictures; it allows me to feel almost as a participant myself. I am somehow especially moved by images of the homa fire. It is the first thing I turn to in the morning after reading the daily lesson.
Lord Siva is the Supreme Being of the universe, not one of many gods. To Saivites Siva is the supreme being; to Vaishnavites Vishnu is the supreme being. The soul starts with experiencing the world. On one side the soul is pulled by veiling grace toward the world. On the inside the soul is pulled by revealing grace toward God. Resolving karma, maturing in the world, fulfilling dharma, we move toward imperturbability, realization, moksha.
