Haran is a Master Course Student who has completed his Level One study and will be adopting Saivite Hinduism and changing his name soon. He and his wife Maria Dolores came to visit the media lab and chat with Paramacharya Palaniswami.
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.
