We share with you a few more photos of the Bodhinatha seminar on Saivism which was so uplifting to everyone. Those who have studied Saiva Siddhanta had their faith reinforced, while newcomers were really happy to know the true nature of the one Supreme God Siva who is the creator, the preserver and destroyer of all existence.
Each of Bodhinatha's explanation was accompanied by an appropriate visual display from the projector.

"There are three kinds of karma: the karma of all deeds done in our past lives; the karmas we bring into this birth to experience; and the karmas we are making by our actions now."
Karma is an automatic system of divine justice. Karma is self-created destiny; a consequence or fruit of action, karmaphala. By accepting not reacting, performing karma yoga, karma can be softened, mitigated. Seeking the grace of God and guru in the right spirit, the mind focused on the Deity and open to blessings, receiving the intense grace of the Deity in a powerful pilgrimage can actually eliminate karma.
