Today we began a new phase with an inspiring homa, Bodhinatha’s next installment on Purpose, Plan Persistence and Push, a tour day, pilgrims and sunshine!
Satish, Usha and Akhila family were back this morning to have darshan with Bodhinatha. They got some advice about giving help to others, and discussed the Silver Vel satsang group that they are members of. The satsang group meets to discuss Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami’s teachings and how to apply in one’s life, and they also seek to raise funds for Iraivan Temple project. This family has been coming regularly to Kauai for a long time, once a year if possible and they were blessed to have met Gurudeva here years ago.
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.
