Many Forms of Siva

Gurudeva would often tell us that "Siva is coming today, in some of His many forms." He saw each visitor as Siva in yet another form.

Today we share some of Siva's forms. Visitors from Canada and a local group called the Master Gardeners of Kauai.

One of the Master Gardeners recorded some of the stories shared by Sadasivanathaswami. It's a bit long, 32 minutes, but has some interesting insights into the magic land Gurudeva created. Here is the link:

    Why do we never tire of hearing the remarkable story of a tiny group of impoverished monks who wandered the earth following their Satguru, worshiping Shiva, and fell into the lap of an overgrown jungle paradise home as their final destiny? I wanted more.

    It’s magic land and you don’t have to be a highly evolved yogi to experience the spontaneous secrets of life it unlocks. Years ago we were giving a public tour to about 100 people and as we all stood on the lookout overlooking the Wailua River rushing down from the magnificent Mount Waialeale – we were, as instructed, sharing a few beliefs of the Hindu Religion. One of the guests asked how the Hindu God Siva creates souls and what is the relationship to Him. That day the trades were a steady 10 mph with a few gusts up to 20 mph. At that very moment across the valley, a giant Albizia tree was hit with a gusting trade wind and released thousands of seeds. The scene was astonishing as they fluttered down sparkling in the sunlight onto the valley floor, into the river, and beyond. It was a speechless moment – we only had to point!
