Today is a doubly auspicious day as New Year’s day coincides with Yogaswami’s Annual Maha Samadhi which is celebrated on the April Aslesha nakshatra which also occured on New Year day today. Yogaswami’s shrine is specially decorated at the Aadheenam today and a simple arati was performed before our early morning meditation.

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.
