Scientist from Bangalore, Dr. T.S. Mohan, visiting Hawaii for a conference. he has been reading Hinduism Today for 24 years!
He is standing on left. To his right is Kumeraintharen Murugiah from Penang, Malaysia. He is a student of environmental science doing an exchange program that brought him to University of Hawaii Manoa for a couple weeks, then on to mainland USA for few weeks to do field studies
Kumeraintharen has followed us on TAKA for quite some time and dreamed of performing abhishekam to our Narmada Lingam. He briefly met Satguru Bodhinatha in Kuala Lumpur around ten years ago at a Tirumurai competition. He is interested to become a formal sishya.
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.
