I met you in your beautiful gardens a few weeks ago while I was photographing the exquisite flowers and foliage you have planted. Here is the image I created using a photo of the statue in the pool outside the temple. I am creating a website to promote my images called “Divine In Nature” …soon to be completed.
Thank you for the beauty you have created for so many to enjoy. I always feel so close to God when I visit the temple.
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.
