Worship of Lord Murugan

Today we share Gurudeva's inspired upadesha after this morning's Skanda Shasti homa and puja. Gurudeva talks about Lord Murugan, as well as about the characteristics of both the Kadavul Temple and the Iraivan Temple. Gurudeva also talks about the Saiva Siddhanta way of performing external worship and then internalizing that worship.

Giving a gift begrudgingly in return for another gift is, of course, mere barter. Many families barter their way through life in this way, thinking they are giving. But such gifts are cold, the fulfillment is empty, and the law of karma pays discounted returns.
