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.

Always worship this great God. Never fear Him. He is the Self of your self. He is closer than your own breath. His nature is love, and if you worship Him with devotion you will know love and be loving toward others.
