Maha Sivaratri has arrived. It is the time of deep contact with our Great Lord, a time of spiritual renewal and a re-focus on the spiritual goal of life. Bodhinatha sent us some words of wisdom as quotes from Gurudeva, see below.
In our teachings we're both monistic and theistic. In the beliefs of Saivism the idea of the three worlds is the basis and key to understanding temple worship, theism. The inner worlds are there to help you. The essence of the soul is already the same as the essence of God Siva, monism. You just have to find it.
