Dr. K. Ganesalingam and family members visited for the first. He is a scholar of Saiva Siddhanta philosophy. He grew up in Jaffna, Sri Lanka, met Satguru Yogaswami, then our Gurudeva, Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami, and now Satguru Bodhinatha. Now he’s settled in Australia.
Rajesh and Radha Narayanan with their daughters Sahana and Shruti are visiting for first time from California. They follow the teachings of Sri Ramana Maharishi. They asked Bodhinatha’s wisdom on how to control the flow of thoughts when we sit to meditate.
They enjoyed the peacefulness of Swayambhu Lingam area
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.
