Despite the economic slow down, we continue to get a steady stream of pilgrims as we head into the holiday season.
Mr. and Mrs. Ganeshalingam are visiting from Edmonton for the first time. They are one of the seven founding trustees of the Mahaganapati Temple in Edmonton. His parents lived close to Satguru Sivayogaswami’s ashram in Sri Lanka. His father used to keep a special room for Yogaswami to stay in when traveling about.
Both of them are very taken with Kauai Aadheenam property, having never seen any other temple property that has such a beautiful, serene environment.
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.
