Sannyasin Senthilnathaswami presided over the Sacred Homa Ceremony this morning, assisted by Sadhaka Tandavanatha.
Afterwards, Paramacharya Palaniswami gave a delightful talk, beginning with stories from the biography of Milarepa, Tibet's Great Yogi, then offering parallels with Gurudeva's life. He then read passages from the unpublished book, with stories of Gurudeva's years in Sri Lanka back in 1949.
Wish I’d been in the temple this morning to hear about my favorite historical hero, Milarepa, and the parallels with Gurudeva’s life. In the TAKA photo, Palaniswami is in the same pose as Milarepa on the cover of his biography.
The idea of Monistic Theism is seen in the three perfections of God Siva. Theism is the face of evolving, monism is always the Truth. We have pure consciousness and the source of pure consciousness, Absolute Reality. The soul body is maturing. The nucleus of your soul and Parameshvara are identical, you just have to realize it. Imkaif, Parasiva, one of the three perfections--you can't describe it.
