At home today was Sun One of a bright new phase. Yogi Jivanandanatha performs the homa.
Paramacharya Palaniswami presides today and offers all the prayers into the fire. Later he gave a short inspired talk on the presence of God inside of each of us. He shared news of a new short video by the Hindu American Foundation which we are showing below. He then read from Gurudeva’s Publisher’s Desk titled “See God Everywhere” which we copy below along with the Silpi outing photos.
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.
