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.
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.
