Sivaratri 2000 Part 1

Today we begin posting segments of Gurudeva's inspiring talk from the great holy night of Siva, Mahasivaratri, celebrated by the mathavasi last phase. Gurudeva begins by saying that there are no hard rules for Siva's worship, just to give your whole heart to Siva. Then, Gurudeva offers, Lord Siva will realize himself in you. We haven't heard Gurudeva speak of realization like this before, and he uses this theme throughout the talk. Don't miss it.

To the Hindu the ground is sacred. The rivers are sacred. The sky is sacred. The sun is sacred. His wife is a Goddess. Her husband is a God. Their children are devas. Their home is a shrine.
