Brahmachari Vel Mahalingum who has never seen snow before in his life and was amazed to feel how cold it was in France, writes us today with this picture:
Aum Sri Ganesha
Prostrations to the holy feet of Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami
Aum Namah Shivaya Yoginatha Swami
Thank U for your mail
I am leaving Paris for Mauritius tomorrow. We will keep in touch.
In two or three years I’ll be back on Task Force on Kauai.
Today I have been at the Ganesha Temple.
I sent you a photo with the mail.
I have passed great time in Paris.
Now it’s the end of my trip which began with all of you in the monastery with great moments.
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.
