It is the last day of Sadhu Paksha… Tomorrow we raise the flag of the Jivana Ritau.
Bodhinatha and Shanmuganathaswami have returned from Germany where they were looking into options for setting up a distribution center for our literature in Europe. They are now safe and sound in London and will be with devotees there for a few days, returning to Kauai on the 19th.
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.
