Thank you David for that response. It prompts me to add that if it weren’t for my coming across the Merging with Siva and Loving Ganesa books on a friend’s shelf I would not be “a spiritual person”. Not only did his words get me back to seeking God but finding out that He was Siva, of all things. If someone would have told me I would become a Hindu even two years ago…..
Love and Light to Gurudeva, Satguru Bodhinatha, and all the Swamis and Sadhakas that made it possible for me to discover and to GROW into the within.
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.
