Gaurang and Darshana Nanavaty visited again today with some friends from Houston. They are full time teachers for the Chinmaya Mission and instrumental in the preparation of courses and books for training teachers. Sannyasin Arumugaswami had a long session with Darshana in which she shared their programs.
It was a privilege to have this chance to get to know some sevaks who have completely dedicated their lives to educating the next generation in Hinduism and for us to be able to strengthen our long-time association with our brothers and sisters of the Chinmaya Mission, a relationship that goes all the way back to Swami Chinmayananda’s first visits to America and his relationship with Gurudeva.
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.
