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!
The three distinct attainments in our philosophy: realization-nirvikalpa samadhi, moksha-liberation and merger-vishvagrasa. Believe in our ability to raise consciousness high and hold it. Every day live in the highest state of consciousness you can. Take on Siva's point of view, see divinity. Experience what's real. Pay attention to that aspect of you which is Siva.
