Today was the auspicious day of Ardra. Lord Nataraja received His monthly abhishekam. It is always a powerful moment for those who have the karma to come.
For those who love to listen to Bodhinatha’s talks, we linked a new one today. Click here to keep your eye on his 2010 index page for new talks. We upgraded our audio processing tools to now include the standard metadata so that if you save the file to your iTunes, iPod or Droid MP3 player app, it will show a proper artist, album and title in your audio library. We also captured two of his classes on innersearch and these were divided into 8 fabulous upadeshas coming to you soon!
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.
