Here is a marvel of nature we have just discovered--a new flower, a new dance of Lord Siva.
This is the plant it comes from. The flower is hidden in the heart of the plant and you really have to look for it to find it. That is why it escaped our notice for so long. We do not know the name of the plant. Anyone out there know?
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.
