Jai Yogaswami! Jai Gurudeva!
The “SOTHI” (FLAME of THE FIRE”) of the above HOMA,
is the real symbolic of the HUGE “SOTHI” at THIRUVANNAMALAI
SRI ARUNACHALA SIVAN TEMPLE, in THIRUVANNAMALAI ,
Tamil Nadu , South India, where during “KARTHIKAI THEEPAM”
Day, of every year, during end of November(Tamil – Hindu Calender
month of “KARTHIKAI”(Lord Murugan’s Nakshathira), Hundreds of Gallons of GHEE are poured into the massive container of a THEEPAM, on top of the Hill, at Thiruvannamalai & the “SOTHI”
of the “THEEPAM” with BLESSINGS, could be seen from very far away, of Miles distance, by thousands of Siva Devotees! Aum Siva.
In Saiva Puranams, we come across songs, as follows:
— “SOTHIYE SUDDARE” !
–“THOONDU SUDAR ANNAIYA SOTHI KANDAAI”
–“AATHIYUM ANTHAMUM ILLA ARUTPERUM SOTHI ”
– “SOTRUNAI VETHIYAN, SOTHI VAANAVAN”
Yes! GURUDEVA is giving his BLESSINGS, from the “SOTHI”
of the HOMA, at the Kauai Aashramam! WOW! Wonderful! Aum SIVA! SIVA!
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.
