Today was our monthly Ashram Sadhana day. Monks were out cleaning, repairing and maintaining — keeping up the physical environment, which, in our tropical jungle environment, is an on-going challenge.
The Siddhidata Kulam (“SK”) gave their report today. It’s amazing how much they do. Today’s report included a long list of work and repairs done on vehicles, laundry driers, showers, fences, ditch system.
Thanks to the SK for keeping everything running for all the rest of us!
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.
