the painting illustrates the path the Agamas travelled over thousands of years to reach Picchai Gurukkal at Pillaiyarpatti, who is imparting the knowledge to several young Hindu priests. Having met him on September 3, 2008, at Pillaiyarpatti, it gives me great pleasure to see Picchai Gurukkal receive this painting which he so well deserved! Brilliant gift!
Why aren't we with God Siva? Bondage: anava, karma and maya. The law of karma is teaching us to understand the behavior which is conducive to the unfoldment of the soul. Anava makes us think we're an individual, separate. Through positive experience, use it to accomplish, mature the soul. The sense of a Oneness eventually comes in. "..all are pervaded by love. But there is no all for you alone exist. All are you."
