Bodhinatha departed for Australia yesterday with Sadhaka Haranandinatha and reported in earlier today that they had a successful 10 hour flight to Sydney, were met by devotees there and that he is having darshan meetings this afternoon and evening at the hotel.
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.
