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.

The experience of ananda in savikalpa samadhi has to cease before you can have the deeper nirvikalpa samadhi. Agitations of the mind are released by the attainment of shanti in the anahata and vishuddha chakras. Only man can experience Satchidananda, the all pervasiveness of God. Understanding where we are in consciousness. The realization of one's self as a soul is the first stage of Self Realization, then Satchidanada, then Parasiva.
