Sorrow and Suffering

Man in the mouth of a snake. Trishula emerges from the top of the breath of the spirit. Man in the grip of sorrows saved by the spirit

Image of Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
Namah Sivaya has such power, the mere intonation of these syllables reaps its own reward in salvaging the soul from bondages of the treacherous instinctive mind and the steel bands of a perfected externalized intellect.
