On the Eastern coast of Sri Lanka there is a ray of light amid all of the difficulties being experienced by the nation. It is the Yogaswami Boy’s Home in Batticaloa. Here the boys perform Guru Puja to Yogaswami in their shrine room.
They are an amazingly productive team, young but so enthused. They are learning Yogaswami’s Natchintanai songs, and they do energetic service in the community.
At the end of the Guru Puja, following Yogaswami’s decree at the KKS Road Sivathondan Nilayam, they remain “summa” silent for a time, discovering the Infinity within.
Offerings made to Yogaswami's paduka, the sacred sandals of the Satguru.
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.
