Wow! Dear Amma Vicki, what a lovely gift – and what a wonderful handcraft! I tried pottery some years ago and can definitelly evaluate how difficult it is to produce pieces so perfect and even as these cups. Congratulations!
Now, I have to confess that knowing you are there with our “kids” makes me wish I were there too! – it´s been almost a year since my visit, and I miss them all! Please give all of them a big kiss from
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.
