Palaniswami got a call from a local man today. He is leaving the island and has a Japanese maple Tree in a 12-gallon pot that he can’t take with him.
Go on. Would the monastery accept it as a gift, to add to your collection of amazing plants.
Hmmm. Let us think. Ok, enough thinking, yes, we would be honored to give this botanical gem a home. Of course, it does not look like this today, but one day it will, and pilgrims will have one more oh and one more ah!
The idea of Monistic Theism is seen in the three perfections of God Siva. Theism is the face of evolving, monism is always the Truth. We have pure consciousness and the source of pure consciousness, Absolute Reality. The soul body is maturing. The nucleus of your soul and Parameshvara are identical, you just have to realize it. Imkaif, Parasiva, one of the three perfections--you can't describe it.
