Upadesha by Bodhinatha on the Two-Syllable Mantra given at Kadavul Temple on July 31, 2011. The Sun is the goal of the devotee's path. Siva is the self God; the Sun. Si (absolute state) Va (all prevading) A person's karma and dharma may be changed by deep meditation. Surrender is key to realising the Self and prapatti (total surrender) can be achieved by regular and consistent practice. Monistic theism - dual state of identify is also explained.
