It is the end of our short phase and we have a 3-day retreat coming up. The Ganapati Kulam reported on their work today. They are very focused on finishing the July issue of Hinduism Today and getting ready for Innersearch.
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.
