Yesterday Bodhinatha flew to California, over night by the airport and then a morning flight today to Texas.
He is traveling with Senthilnathaswami. They will be presenting at the Hindu Students Association Emerging Chakra leader’s retreat this weekend, staying the week in Dallas and then joining the general membership for the HSA Gateway students’ retreat next weekend, flying home on Friday the 8th.
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.
