T. Sivagnanam on pilgrimage from Edmonton, Canada. He is one of the founders of the Maha Ganapathy Temple Temple there. He worked very closely with Gurudeva who helped guide him and others in Edmonton as far back as 1978 before the temple was built. Today the temple is a spiritual powerhouse in the north. Here is the temple web site http://www.mahaganapathytemple.com
And you can go here for a very good account of the early years of the temple from its inception to completion. it explains Gurudeva’s participation when, in 1978, Gurudeva sent a Ganesha murthi to the devotees: http://www.rajahs.net/mgtemple.html
The three distinct attainments in our philosophy: realization-nirvikalpa samadhi, moksha-liberation and merger-vishvagrasa. Believe in our ability to raise consciousness high and hold it. Every day live in the highest state of consciousness you can. Take on Siva's point of view, see divinity. Experience what's real. Pay attention to that aspect of you which is Siva.
