We began a new, and very busy phase today. Bodhinatha gave a great talk on the Self today… stay tuned for this in the days ahead.
Bodhinatha and Shanmuganathaswami leave for their trip to Guyana, Trinidad and points East on Sun Three.
Sadhu Paksha also begins on Sun 3 and the monastery will be closed to visitors and public tours. The monks change their early morning sadhana routine to “merge with nature” instead of a formal meditation.
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.
