The cruise ship is in port today. A special tour group of 200 Hindus was on board. Half of them came to the temple this morning. They showered their affection and appreciation on the temple and Gurudeva as they left.
The Gujarati Patel community is noted for their generosity toward sadhus. Our own monks have sat in meditation at Rameshwaran only to come back to the conscious mind to find coins placed before them by the North Indians on pilgrimage to the south. Today they continued that tradition by giving “bhiksha” (alms to monks) to Gurudeva.
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.
