Makaif – The Ultimate Practice and Attainment of Siddhanta

We bring gold from Gurudeva’s audio archive. A classic talk from 1973. The ultimate goal of life itself.

Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami

Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami explains Makaif–a shum word defined as the ultimate attainment of Siddhanta. Using the shum language, Gurudeva describes the path to the Self-Realization. How to live a lifestyle dedicated to the practice of Raja Yoga. Vumtyemka described as a sadhana. The Search for the Self. Iikaif. Sadhana, tapas, austerity, obey spiritual laws. Siva as Divine Dancer, life force, divine energy, pure consciousness. Realize Siva in all of His fullness and all of His nothingness and realize that which you always have been. (26 minutes)

    Dearest Gurudeva – Thank you for coming from the world of light and stretching a golden hand to the least of us tiny creatures who are gorged in distraction . . . forgetful . . . lazy . . . stupid and dull. But You kept calling, You kept reaching to show us the way out, show us our Light. But we are stubborn in our sloth – You saw so clearly our twisted ways, yet you continued. Continued to love us, care for us and took the incalculable sacrifice to walk among us in our commas, in our ignorance, in our selfishness. To jar us lose a thousand times . . . only to watch us fall back to a stupor and sound asleep again and again. And yet you kept calling and shaking and calling and loving and asked for nothing – nothing but that we would see . . . And You keep calling to us even now. What a miracle is life. What a miracle You are.
