Deep inside we are perfect this very moment and have to live up to that perfection. Gurudeva's teachings are unique and outline the different benefits of temple worship: personal darshan; problem solving; uplifted in consciousness. The Pancha Nitya Karma place strong emphasis on temple worship and identify 3 main duties of a person: perform puja daily; attend temple once a week and pilgrimage once a year. This is the foundation of Saiva Siddhantha.
