A new phase began today. Our retreat was a dynamic two days. Paramacharya Sadasivanathaswami and Sadhaka Satyanatha left for India via San Francisco, via Frankfurt where they took one night to rest before heading to a very intense schedule in the Holy Land. The trip is being sponored by His Holiness Jagadguru Sri Shivarathri Deshikendra Mahaswamiji of the JSS mission in Karnataka. Shivarathri Mahaswamiji visit Kauai Aadheenam in 2010 and invited the monks to attend a big function there in January 2012. See the report below.
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.
