Looking forward to the “mystical” experience of astronaut Edgar Mitchell. In December 2016, this mystical issue was discussed with a few devotees at the Highgate Hill Murugan Temple and with my own son in London. Knowing that a Chinese lunar sample collection mission is going to take place after almost 50 years, I cannot wait to read about the mystical experience!
Thank you Satguru and Swamis for all the answers I seek in my life!
"Bodhinatha describes the nature of the holy men and women of Saivism and relates the teachings of the women saint Auvaiyar. He shows how her focus is on dharma and at the same time, in her poem to Ganesha, how she exemplifies the nature of the monistic theism of our tradition -- how theistic worship of the Deity takes us deep into inner awakenings of monism, being one with Siva.
