After our mention yesterday, we received a lot of queries about the new Natchintanai book. We are not taking any pre-orders. You will just need to stay tuned for the announcement when we have it stocked at our Minimela shop site. If we sell out immediately (which appears likely) don’t worry, we will reprint right away.
From the back cover:
“The profound tradition of Saivism migrated to Sri Lanka centuries ago. It was transmitted in recent times through a lineage of siddhars of the highest order. The late 19th and early 20th century master, Siva Yogaswami of Colombuthurai, left a rich heritage of songs known as Natchintanai (“Good Thoughts”) that contain the essence of Siva worship and Saiva philosophy. This selection of 73 of those songs is meant to serve as an introduction and learning tool for those who would integrate this veritable fountain of divine wisdom into the hearts and lives.”
Iccha , Kriya and Jnana Shakti: the pattern of life. Muruga's Vel is Jnana Shakti. We can always use more of the power of wisdom, Jnana Shakti. The power of desire, Iccha Shakti. If it comes up: "I'm not perfect as I'm supposed to be," wisdom allows us to move on, learn, and come into a more refined pattern of behavior.
