The Saiva Path – Amazing Talk on Saiva Siddhanta!

Satguru Bodhinatha VeylanswamiIn this commentary on Chapter 30 of Path to Siva, Bodhinatha encapsulates the entire path of Saiva Siddhanta in one short talk. Don’t miss it!

Key concepts: Naalupadasaivam: “A Saiva doctrine that the initiate should pass successively through charya, kriya, yoga and jnana stages and thence obtain moksha.” The charya pada, the dasa marga, path of servitude. Sharing the world of God. The kriya pada, satputra marga, true son’s way. Nearness to God. The yoga pada, sakha marga, way of the friend, experiencing inner light, sharing the superconscious mind. We talk to God. The jnana pada, san marga, sayujya patavi, union with God. There is no difference between Siva and the soul. God is our dearest Beloved. The three types of temples provide training and experience leading to worship and meditation in the Atma kovil.

Aum Namah Sivaya

"That which is neither conscious nor unconscious, which is invisible, impalpable, indefinable, unthinkable, unnameable, whose very essence consists of the experience of its own self, which absorbs all diversity, is tranquil and benign, without a second, which is what they call the fourth state--that is the Atman. This it is which should be known."- Atharva Veda, Mandukya Upanishad 7.VE, 723
