Today we complete another phase as we enter what some are calling the Prime New Year: 2011 is a prime number. It is also a sum of 11 consecutive prime numbers, the ones found between 157 and 211.
What does that mean? It means it is really a great number and if you roast it, add a little salt and curry powder a prime number make a great snack… Ha!! just kidding. A prime number is only divisible by One and Itself. Lord Siva is the Maha Prime Number.
We wish everyone all the best and a successful 2011!

A year that starts on 01-01-11 should be an inspiration for everyone to look at it as really brand new beginning. All pages of this year´s book are blank, and it´s up to each one of us what to write, draw or paint on them. On my book´ pages, I hope to have the same lovely good humor all of you, my sons, have! with love, “Ha!” to you, too!
Within our Saiva Siddhanta Holy Scriptures the Saiva Agamas explain the basis of temple ceremonies and worship plus yoga and jnana. The Tirukural was considered by Gurudeva to be "the most accessible and relevant sacred text." In it are practical and helpful guidelines for our conduct in every day life. The point of family life is to gain steady improvement, forever, in self control in the midst of responsibilities in the fulfillment of family dharma. Meanwhile, not taking detachment too far but taking it in the sense of spiritually looking for happiness, not outside in other people or possessions, the world, but inside ourselves and then sharing it with family and friends. "We regard the writings of our satgurus as scripture."

Tirukural, Chapter 15 Possession of Self-Control
"The temple enables us to feel the presence of God, Gods and devas." We use our inner eyes to see what's going on in the temple, the three worlds. In the temple we're being good dvaitists in the dimfi perspective, focused in bhakti upon God Siva. In meditation we're monists, in the shumif perspective. We claim our oneness with Siva, Sivoham, I am Siva. In surrender, shrinking the ego through devotion, we have a realization that we're not the doer, that Siva is doing it all. Siva's energy comes through our soul.
