greetings/Namaste, to all of the silpis, their loving hands, intelligent, devoted, skills of knowing, doing and being, not to mention Patience, and Diligence!!, me ke aloha/aum namah sivaya, ‘Auntie Leah’ Leonora LeahVani, Artist/Educator/Friend of Silpis!
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.
