Our Siddhidata Kulam reported on their work this phase. They put a lot of effort into post storm clean up, our garden and the on-going maintenance of our entire physical infrastructure.
On other fronts, we had a very unusual tour day the other day because everyone was very interested in metaphysics and the Pillaiyar Kulam informs us that they sold 5 sets of the Master Course Trilogy and many other books.
On other fronts, Bodhinatha, Paramacharya Palaniswami and Sannyasin Senthilnathaswami are very focused now on preparing for their trip and participation at the Parliament of the World Religions in Melbourne, Australia, where it is summer time now with temperature reaching 110 degrees fahrenheit.
We got an interesting query from a Hinduism Today reader who is using quotes from Dancing with Siva on Newsweek blog discussions.
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.
