This past phase we have been compiling scans of paper manuscripts of old Saiva writings. These are turned into PDF’s for easy viewing. When the priest in Tamil Nadu, Professor Bhatt, set out to rescue scriptures held by the priests families, in many cases the families did not want to give up their collection, so arrangements were made to copy the original palm leaf and other manuscripts that were in the Granth script and transpose them into Devanagari.
This heritage included many Saiva Agamas and other very interesting and useful texts.
This text was written centuries ago by a Sivachariya priest who was also the Mathadhipati of an Aadheenam in Tamil Nadu.

To fully experience God we need the guru to give the spark for meditation and deeper wisdom.
