Siva Yogaswami (1872-1964) said in Natchintanai, at two places that I know of, the following:
(1) Even if famine and army come
Even if the land is burned by fire
We will not be in fear—oh parrot
Arumugan (Nallur Murugan) is our refuge
(2) When famine and army come—Vel Vel
Don’t fail to repeat Siva’s name (Namah Sivaya)
Siva Yogaswami had foreseen what is going to come in the future—the sufferings of Tamils in Sri Lanka, and He had given us hope and a way to relief ourselves from the oncoming Karma too: Nallur Murugan is our refuge, and Aum Namah Sivaya is our shield. It is really a heart warming feeling that the Nandinatha parampara is taking care of the suffering souls in Sri Lanka from this and the inner worlds.
THANK YOU SWAMIS.
Become an accomplished human being; soar into the fourth dimension. Artists experience mountaintop consciousness. Having their source in humble devotion to the Lord, Saiva cultural arts: singing, drama, dance, playing musical instruments and creative skills strengthen concentration and are a form of worship. Religious art is an expression of the soul nature, bringing the beauty of the within into manifestation.
How Can We Be Strong Saivite Hindus?
Gurudeva: "The time has come for Hindus of all races, all nations, of all cultures, of all sects to stand up and let the peoples of the world know of the great religion of which they are one of the staunch adherents." The first way of learning religion is to memorize its tenants. The challenge of living with Siva means bringing religion into the home, into the family, into our interactions with all other people. Kshama-forbearance and patience. Everything we experience we set in motion. Everything is just the next thing to do. Treat everyone in a friendly and inspiring way. Learn our religion and then live by it.
