Bodhinatha and Shanmuganathswami report they have arrived save and sound in Maryland.
Meanwhile news from Trinidad would indicate Bodhinatha is in for a major reception there. Our Hinduism Today correspondent Paras Ramoutar who is acting as the media-communications coordinator for Bodhinatha’s visit says his lectures will be attended by Some government officials and his visit will be covered by the local newspaper and TV stations.
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.
