Potriyan Sivanathan arrived from Malaysia today for three-month Task Force stay at the monastery. He’s been with Gurudeva since he was a little boy, being the son of Ramesh and Saraswathy Sivanathan, one of our oldest sishya families in Malaysia.
Here is with fellow task forcer, Maruthu, who now has a companion at the guest house for a couple of weeks before he returns to Malaysia.
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.
