Kulapati Sivakumaren is here from Mauritius. His wife and daughters are taking a long vacation here with their grand parents and Sivakumaren just dropped by on his way to New York. He will be back on the 11th.
In our teachings we're both monistic and theistic. In the beliefs of Saivism the idea of the three worlds is the basis and key to understanding temple worship, theism. The inner worlds are there to help you. The essence of the soul is already the same as the essence of God Siva, monism. You just have to find it.
