Aum Namah Sivaya. This guide is truly inspired as it makes my inner preparation for Innersearch that much more focused, intentional, and visualized. What a blessing to have this guide to the inside (in addition to the Siva trilogy). I am almost overwhelmed at times with the outpouring. God truly does make nine steps towards my every one and coming across this proves that to me. Jai Ganesa! Aum Namah Sivaya. Aum, Aum, Aum.

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.
