Ashram sadhana day is the day when the sadhana is to make the ashram actnic. All the elements that hinder the flow of actinic force are removed, such as old junk, unclean surroundings and poorly planned elements of the immediate environment. Broken items are also repaired. The focus is on simplicity.
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.
