Worship of Lord Murugan

Today we share Gurudeva's inspired upadesha after this morning's Skanda Shasti homa and puja. Gurudeva talks about Lord Murugan, as well as about the characteristics of both the Kadavul Temple and the Iraivan Temple. Gurudeva also talks about the Saiva Siddhanta way of performing external worship and then internalizing that worship.

It is not a matter of becoming the Self, but of realizing that you never were not the Self. And what is that Self? It is Parasiva. It is God. It is That which is beyond the mind, beyond thought, feeling and emotion, beyond time, form and space.
—Gurudeva
