We’re now in Singapore airport waiting to fly to Kuala Lumpur for one night, then on to Mauritius.
While in Honolulu waiting to depart for Tokyo, one of the Chinese Asian Pacific Economic Conference delegates from Beijing came over and chatted with us to learn more about our rudraksha beads and what kind of yoga we do. He said that many people in China are learning hatha yoga, while only a handful are learning about the other aspects of yoga.
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.
