At his afternoon satsang yesterday, Palaniswami shared Gurudeva's sutras on the environment and the duties we all have to do our small part to help with climate change.
Our approached, he offered, is based on what Gurudeva called the " the paired principles of ahimsa (do no harm) and the all-pervasiveness of Divinity." With these two in mind, we naturally want to protect all living things, for Siva is within them completely.
He also shared news of the Hanuman in India, shown here a few months back dwarfing Acharya Arumugaswami.
A beautiful sculpture.
Even the details on the back are excellent. In Hanuman's hand will be placed Iraivan Temple, depicting that he carried it from India to Kauai.
"Stand strong for Saivism." The nature of life for Saivites is to turn work into worship, to turn the secular into the sacred. Each day give a little extra warmth, humanness and upliftment to others. Every day is a holy day, all day long. We want to follow our religion even in our dreams. If we help someone, we're worshiping. Wherever we are, that's a place of worship. "To the Saivite Hindu all of life is sacred. All of life is religion."
