Our youngest cat, Pandian, loves to jump up on top of cars, and vehicles. Here he is on the tractor. All these brand names make perfect sense to him. He says, “I’m done with this Deer. Can I use that Cat when you are done, Yoginathaswami? “
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.
