Sivaratri 2000 Part 3

Gurudeva's Sivaratri upadesha explores spiritual solutions to the problems of humanity. Gurudeva stresses that Lord Siva's philosophy teaches that problems are meant to be solved, they are not meant to be lived with. Gurudeva also explains the powers that Lord Siva gives to His devotees, to take negative energy and make it positive and to influence by example.

It is not a matter of becoming the Self, but of realizing that you never were not the Self. And what is that Self? It is Parasiva. It is God. It is That which is beyond the mind, beyond thought, feeling and emotion, beyond time, form and space.
—Gurudeva
