For Satguru Speaks fans, note the new talk we posted in the side bar…. this was Bodhinatha Upadesha from last week, a very interesting talk on some differences between Christianity and Hinduism and how we should never stand still on the path.
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.
