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.

God Siva created us. He created the Earth and all things upon it, animate and inanimate. He created time and gravity, the vast spaces and the uncounted stars. He created night and day, joy and sorrow, love and hate, birth and death.
