Today we had the visit of a soul that arrived recently from the Devaloka. Her name is Lyla and she chose the Tanzi family to take this birth. As you can see, she is definitely happy with the choice.
Lyla explained (in not so many words) that Kauai Aadheenam is a beautiful and peaceful place where she feels at home. She also said that she loves the monks and that those long beards are great for pulling.
Rudy Tanzi, Dora Kovacs and Lyla are staying here for a few days. They explained their goal of raising their child to be a confident and strong person, not afraid of new or different things. It’s actually great timing on their part, since Hinduism Today’s latest issue has a beautiful insight on positive discipline.
Don’t miss it, your children will thank you for years to come.
SUTRA 14: GUIDING AND NURTURING CHILDREN
Those who live with Siva personally guide their children’s spiritual and secular education. They teach and model respect, share what happens each day, have fun together and shower love and hugs upon them.
Focus on being a soul, not the body, mind and emotions. When we think of ourselves as a soul we're able to move forward and get closer and closer to Siva. That's the whole idea of Saiva Siddhanta. A negative self-concept is an obstacle. We can change our self-concept through applying Gurudeva's teachings, affirming every day that we are a divine being.
