Bodhinatha’s Latest Upadeshas -- What is the Nature of Life for Saivites?
” Path to Siva, Lesson 19 -- Every Day Is a Day of Worship” (March 6,2017)
“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.”

The midnight vigilee caught these shots of Tiruvalluvar writing away while the aadheenam slept. His stone image comes alive at night and seemed to be lit up and calling out his truths.

Bodhinatha's Latest Upadeshas:
"God Siva —the Supreme Being" (January 01,2017)
Lord Siva is the Supreme Being of the universe, not one of many gods. To Saivites Siva is the supreme being; to Vaishnavites Vishnu is the supreme being. The soul starts with experiencing the world. On one side the soul is pulled by veiling grace toward the world. On the inside the soul is pulled by revealing grace toward God. Resolving karma, maturing in the world, fulfilling dharma, we move toward imperturbability, realization, moksha.
