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.

The Saiva Siddhanta perspective is that Siva's wonderful universe of form is perfect at every point in time, complete and totally just, and every soul, in all stages of evolution, is an intrinsic part of it, even Siva himself.
