Lord Nataraja, the Meaning of Siva’s Dance

Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami

Bodhinatha's Latest Upadeshas:
"What is the Meaning of Siva's Dance" (February 5,2017)

Initially we're looking at the world. By Siva's revealing grace, anugraha, ultimately we turn toward God. The soul matures, fulfilling dharmas. We reach a point where we see that Siva is the doer, guiding us, adjusting our angle toward Himself. "Sarvam Sivan seyal." Siva is doing it all. We're flowing with the dance of Siva.

First Homa of February

Nama Sivaya everyone. We hope all is well in your world.

This morning the monks and local devotees along with some wonderful off-island pilgrims woke up before the sun and worshiped Siva.

Here is some text superconsciously pulled from Lemurian Scrolls:
"As the planet becomes older forces equalize themselves and new innovations in cultural procedures are absent. Systems remain status quo. Our shastras predict that a million years after the beginning of the next Sat Yuga there will be great research into science and planetary travel as the fire deepens beneath the Earth's crust. Nothing new is created everything is preserved and nothing is destroyed. There is no fire. It is just a big space station here. Nothing is growing. One of the biggest space stations in the universe. It will be like a nation that gets to the point where it fulfills its purpose and goes away and others move in.
"But now in the Dvarpara Yuga in which we live and have been living for thousands and thousands of years the vibrations of the next are imminent and slight adjustments of the cosmic rays are even now being felt. The onrush of the fulfillment of purpose has culminated and change is imminent. It is only with a great upheaval of the status quo of this yuga will the next begin. Hence in retrospect some of the important manifestations of the preservation of the culture recorded and preserved in the akashic ether of the inner mind will lay a foundation for the continuity of the culture during the wane of the Kali Yuga many thousands of years from now when cosmic rays once again pierce the veiling darkness and the Sat Yuga dawns."

Publication Spotlight: Lemurian Scrolls

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
