For all those who hold our spiritual home land of Sri Lanka dear in their hearts, it is good to see things improving after years of conflict. This new web site:
http://www.jaffna630.com has great panoramas of temples and places in the North. of particular interested for our Parampara are these two for Kumbhalavalai Pillaiyar temple in Alaveddy near the Subramuniya Ashram and Nallur temple.
There are 18 interior and exterior views of the Alaveddy temple. (click on the left column)
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.
