With Mahasivaratri only days away, pilgrims are already beginning to arrive from other countries for this most powerful and spiritual festival honoring Parasivam, the formless aspect of God Siva.
Puvaneswary Roberts arrived from the Netherlands on her fourth pilgrimage to the Aadheenam. Praful Patel and Jayshree Patel arrived from the airport and drove immediately to the Kauai Aadheenam. They are here from Winnnipeg, Manitoba, Canada for their annual pilgrimage and 5th visit to this temple.
In our teachings we're both monistic and theistic. In the beliefs of Saivism the idea of the three worlds is the basis and key to understanding temple worship, theism. The inner worlds are there to help you. The essence of the soul is already the same as the essence of God Siva, monism. You just have to find it.
