A few photos from Swami’s visit yesterday. Here he meets with the publications team.
We share with him some of our publications and Swami shows the publication that details his institution in Karntaka. It is huge! He is head of 1200 mathas throughout the state. Each one is headed by a Veerashaiva Sannyasin. So each generation they recruit and train 1,200 monks to keep their religion moving forward, and this in one state.
Swamiji visited with each of the kulam members. Acharya Kumarnathaswami show him the recent production of a book we are making for Gurudeva’s Tenth Maha Samadhi.
In our teachings we're both monistic and theistic. In the beliefs of Saivism the idea of the three worlds is the basis and key to understanding temple worship, theism. The inner worlds are there to help you. The essence of the soul is already the same as the essence of God Siva, monism. You just have to find it.
