Chola King and Devi

Devi gives life to the dead in Chola's court

Surrounded by recumbent bodies and detruncated heads, a devotee entreaties Devi.

Because Self Realization must be experienced in a physical body, the soul cycles back again and again into flesh to dance with Siva, live with Siva and ultimately merge with Siva in undifferentiated oneness. Yea, jiva is actually Siva.
—Gurudeva
