Anbe Sivamayam Satyame Parasivam! . Thank you Gurudeva for clearing a path for us to follow and for all you have prepared for us and many to come.Heartfelt love and gratitude to Gurudeva and to satguru Bodhinatha and family of monks who work tirelessly to keep us one pointed on our goal of self realization.
The letter "Ya" in the Panchakshara Mantra, Namasivaya, stands for the soul. Bodhinatha uses the Panchakshara Mantra to show how the soul is initially drawn by Siva's veiling grace, which leads the soul to maturity through experience in the world. Then comes Siva's revealing grace. When we've had enough of the world, Siva's grace pulls us toward God. The mantra also has the simple, two-syllable form. Si- Reflecting on God the Transcendent Absolute, Va-God as the All Pervading Consciousness
