Bodhinatha’s Latest Upadeshas -- Mahasivaratri Upadesha, 2017
” Mahasivaratri, 2017 -- The Four Stages of Your Personal Evolution.” (February 24, 2017)
The soul body takes many lifetimes to mature. The height of divine consciousness: There is no difference between you and God. Spiritualize what you are doing as you engage in the world. Unwind the karmas of the past. The stages in Saiva Siddhanta: Charya, kriya, yoga-meditation and jnana. In jnana you and Truth are one. Go deeply enough in meditation to identify with That which is eternal, always existed, never changed: Siva, Satchidananda, Pure Consciousness, Absolute Reality. Ask yourself: “What is the void or the nothingness which is the source of this consciousness?” Then you’re getting close, getting close.
