What Is the Value of Spiritual Friends?

Friends who are fine, positive and good Hindus will help you most of all. It’s important for parents of teenagers to know their teenager’s friends. Our strength comes from mixing and interacting with others who are practicing sadhana. “The group helps the individual and the individual helps the group.”

How Do We Practice Karma Yoga

Pray to Lord Ganesha before beginning work. Turn everything you do into selfless service, seva, karma yoga. Work becomes worship. Hold the perspective of Sivanadiyar that you are the devoted servant of God Siva. “Do everything you do as Sivathondu. Give up this ‘I’ and mine.”

Path to Siva, Lesson 59


What Is the Purpose of the Temple?

“As you approach God’s home, you can feel the spiritual energy, and as you go inside you are engulfed in peace.” Trust in and open up to the deity. God is a very subtle presence. The temple and the murti within it are set up so that anyone can feel God’s presence once they have enough devotion. Go to the temple and through the sanctified murti see God. Kumbabishekam purifies the temple, infuses divine energy into the murti. The deity, during puja, resides in the murti. Continuous daily worship perpetuates and over the years strengthens the power of the temple.

Path to Siva, Lesson 60


How Do We Visit the Temple?

Be close to God by going to the temple. By shifting our minds to our religion the flow of positive karma is intensified. Being open and receptive receive the blessings of the deity. Bask in the divine energy radiating out from the murti. Creating a strong tie to the temple, perform a sacred act when you return home. Light a lamp in your home shrine; bring the vibration and summon the devas from the temple.
