An illustrated clairvoyant revelation of man's untold journey to Earth from the Pleiades millions of years ago and the struggles faced through the eras as souls matured into their ultimate destiny and Divinity.
Excerpted from Chapter One: Pilgrimage to Planet Earth
Mankind migrated to this planet in his divine soul body during
the Sat Yuga the age of enlightenment. He had reached a final stage
of evolution on his native planet. The risk in migrating to a fire planet
was great but so was the reward. They were however at a place in
evolution requiring a planet with fire in it to catalyze them through
new experiences into completing their unfoldment to the final realization
of the Self. Souls came from the other planets to Earth for
one of two reasons: either they came to realize the Self because they
had not previously done so and were just drifting in bliss or were
great beings who already had the Self realized and came to help the
others. They came from everything in a state of status quo. They had
come to this planet to get jostled around in the fire to continue their
When a planet becomes old it cools. Everything
be comes static in it and on it. The beings inhabiting it
exist together like a flock of birds or school of fish so
peaceful they are. Souls who need fire to realize the Self could not
do so on such an old planet so the leaders pilgrimaged with their followers
to perform the austerity of evolution on a fire planet such as
Earth a hot planet a young planet. There will be other planets ready
to be colonized at the end of the Kali Yuga. Inhabitants of Earth will
be able to rapidly access them by traveling as a ray of their own inner
Lesson 67 - How Can We Be Strong Saivite Hindus?
Gurudeva taught, “Once we have chosen and accepted our faith, it is then our spiritual duty to learn it well and live by it as a wholehearted, contributing member of a faith community so that we pass it on in a vibrant way to those who come after us, the next generation.” To be strong Hindus, first we must learn our religion well. This means gaining a good understanding of the philosophy, the culture and the subtle mysticism. Second, we must live by it fully. This means having a solid commitment, a good character, and putting its principles into practice. For us, this includes adopting the gestures, attitudes, customs, ways of worship, dress and refinements of Tamil Saiva culture. The third step is passing our faith along to others. We all live in mixed societies, interrelating with people of varied backgrounds. You may find yourself being asked about your Hindu faith. Some questioners may have no religion. Others may reject religion and believe science has all the answers. You may be confronted by their questions: “Do you worship cows?” “Why are there so many Hindu Gods?” “Why do you wear the dot on your forehead?” Prepare yourself by studying the answers to such questions. Respond with confidence and kindness. Assume that the person really wants to learn. Yes, some may want to harass you, or turn you to their view. If you sense this is the case, smile and dismiss yourself without engaging further. You can also share your faith by conducting classes or sharing at public gatherings. In summery, we each stand strong for Hinduism by being good Hindus. Gurudeva has given us the tools in his Master Course Trilogy, Dancing, Living and Merging With Siva. Using these tools of philosophy, culture and yoga, we can defend, explain, protect, preserve and promote our Saiva faith.
Andre Alves Garzia left Kauai for a two-day journey back to his home and wife Lily in Niteroi (across the bay from Rio) in Brasil. He spent a month here working on many projects and his visit was a great success. Among the thing he accomplished:
- Setting up a small Linux Server called "Buddhi" to back up our web sites daily and provide "disaster recovery" assurance for all our web content.
- Progress on our new SivaSiva app including a Hindu Panchangam module that will actually be released as a separate app.
- assisting the Pilliyar Kulam with their internal monk's only web site that helps with coordination of all our monastic activities.
- Upgrading the software originally created by the monks to process photos and create these TAKA posts. This will allow other monks to contribute very easily and efficiently, even from the road
- Adding support to the media manager software we use in house to create web content. New innovations include Audio books and the Hindu Lexicon and FAQ content support systems. (Stay tuned for announcements on these, as we release some new content in the days and weeks ahead)
- Kick off discussions and advance planning for two major new web content initiatives relating to virtual tours of the Aadheenam and opening up access to our art archives in more user friendly ways.
The monks and Andre want to thank all our Digital Dharma supporters for their contributions which allow up to keep these initiative moving forward, always free and always ad free!
