A new phase began today. Things are quieting down most pilgrims have returned home.
Bodhinatha added a new feature to his Sun One upadesha: he read a story from the Guru Chronicles that related to his talk on the three spiritual goals of life: Self-Realization, Moksha and Vishvagrasa.
Siddhanathaswami is our morning pujari for this phase.
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.
