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.

"Stand strong for Saivism." The nature of life for Saivites is to turn work into worship, to turn the secular into the sacred. Each day give a little extra warmth, humanness and upliftment to others. Every day is a holy day, all day long. We want to follow our religion even in our dreams. If we help someone, we're worshiping. Wherever we are, that's a place of worship. "To the Saivite Hindu all of life is sacred. All of life is religion."
