A new phase began today with our homa as usual. It was followed by Ardra Abhishekam at 9 am.
For those following Bodhinatha’s talks, his bhashya on the February Mamsani (meditation of the month) was posted today.
Saravananathaswami performs homa today.
Bodhinatha gave a short upadesha today on Gurudeva’s teachings about the difference between Satchinananda and Parasivam. The former is formless in the sense of amorphous, like water is formless. Parasivam is beyond even that.
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.
