How blessed are we to have such an unbroken Guru Lineage from East to West – covering the breadth and depth of the universe. Such is the power of the supreme whose message is passed on by the chosen few – mankind is truly blessed by these enlightened souls. Aum Namasivaya!
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.
