The Internal and External Ego


Today Gurudeva discusses the subtleties of the anava in its internal and external aspects. Gurudeva stresses that the first step of spiritual unfoldment is to harmonize these two so that they are one and the same. When this occurs one becomes a complete person, 24 hours a day, and nothing is hidden, even unto oneself. The best way to accomplish this, Gurudeva says, is through the Vasana Daha Tantra.

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.
