Here are the photos of the “Silver Vel Satsang” held at our home today (12:00 to 4:00 PM 16 July 2011). Shanmuganathaswami talked to the Satsang devotees on the phone to discuss about the up coming picnic with the Satsang devotees and the Children attending the Sunday School at the Murugan Temple of North America during Satguru Bodhinatha’s visit to the Nallur Festival (at the Murugan Temple of North America on 13 August 2011). He also answered questions devotees asked on Color’s Magic (Chapter 34 in Gurudeva’s Book “Merging with Siva”).
The Satsang devotees were asked to read this Chapter on Color’s Magic by Shanmuganathaswami before the Satsang meeting.
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.
