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!
For our "Great Departure" we prefer to be at home in a religious, uplifting environment, in a clear minded high state of consciousness, having resolved all differences and fulfilled all obligations. There is nothing to fear: "Death is a blissful, light filled transition." We then get settled in the inner worlds with like-minded people of similar religious beliefs.
