The Siddhidata Kulam gave its news today. Sadhaka Nilakantha is off on his third “year in the world” discipline, which is one of the traditions established by Gurudeva for the sadhaka. Every three years they go out into the world for 6 months or a year to live as solitary sadhus working at a job, sometimes settling family matters, living as monks during this time, alone. After three successful cycles they remain in the monastery permanently.
So the SK has more work on their shoulders as Sadhaka did a lot in the garden and managing our fruit harvests.
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.
