Our phase began with homa today, Paramacharya Palaniswami presiding.
Palaniswami gave an overview of Bodhinatha’s reception in India and continued today with his theme on the confluence of science with Saiva Siddhanta. As scientists continue to investigate the nature of things they are coming to some core realizations: there is no separability between things; time does not always go from past to future, consciousness affects nature; the apparently inert universe is aware of us.
The three distinct attainments in our philosophy: realization-nirvikalpa samadhi, moksha-liberation and merger-vishvagrasa. Believe in our ability to raise consciousness high and hold it. Every day live in the highest state of consciousness you can. Take on Siva's point of view, see divinity. Experience what's real. Pay attention to that aspect of you which is Siva.
