Sorrow and Suffering

Man in the mouth of a snake. Trishula emerges from the top of the breath of the spirit. Man in the grip of sorrows saved by the spirit

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
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
