We have always felt close to Dada J.P. Vaswani, the spiritual head of Sadhu Vaswani Mission in Pune, India. In the late 1990s he came to Kauai to see Gurudeva, whom he adored. Gurudeva had him address the monks in our guru temple--a very rare privilege. He was later chosen as Hinduism Today’s 2002 Hindu of the Year for the magnificent work he does worldwide. We met with him in Melbourne, interviewed him again for Hinduism Today, and he was just as charming as ever, exuding the love and the basic practical advice that he is known for. He gave a rousing speech at the Convocation of Hindu Spiritual Leaders at the Parliament of the World’s Religions in Melbourne on December 8, declaring that to begin to solve the world’s problems we must stop all killing and raise our children with love.
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.
