True to the spirit of the day here we have this gift from Mother Nature. Sadhaka Rajanatha harvested this humungous pumpkin. We call them “Mauritius Pumpkins” because the seeds came from Mauritius. They are strong cultivars--seeds collected from these pumpkins can be planted and grow true to the mother fruit.
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.
