Bodhinatha reports on his day, Tuesday in Malaysia saying he visited Sivajnani Nagappan and his friend Arvindraj’s Teaching Centre for religious classes in the morning. There he talked with Dr. Bala Tharmalingam, second in command of the Malaysian Hindu Sangam after the recently Sangam elections brought in new leadership. Dr. Tharmalingam is hopeful for new collaborations with Hinduism Today and other Hindu organizations in American and UK.
In the evening he met for several hours with many groups of members and devotees for darshan.
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.
