  1. I must say, although this isn't in regards to this particular post, I am thrilled that you are doing this blog. As someone in her 20s, this blog is worded in a way that anyone can understand. It has really helped me to understand and come closer to Lord Shiva. I hope you know that your taking the time to do this blog has had a huge impact on a lot of lives.

    You are doing God's work by telling his story. A year ago, I was just another teenager living life, but this blog has completely transformed my outlook on life. I am thankful that I stumbled upon it, and I hope that you will continue bringing people closer to God through your posts. You are scoring major points in Lord Shiva's book for doing this :) On behalf of everyone who reads this blog, Thank You!

    PS: I particularly enjoy your posts on surrendering to God and knowing that he does what is best. Keep it coming! ;)

  2. YOu just made my day!

    When I first started this blog a couple years ago - I was not so sure on the purpose, was not getting a whole lot of feedback, and I was sort of floundering my way through - don't consider myself an articulate writer by all means, as I work in the tech industry. But I have tried to express the feelings that I have - and to an extent, I feel there is a higher energy guiding us all - and the purpose that I have for this stems from another source. I am just executing His will.

    Thanks for the feedback - gives me a boost in the arm to keep writing. If even a single life is turned around because of my writings, my life would be categorized a success in my mind.


Welcome to the spirituality blog

This blog is an offshoot of a website that I had conceived as a result of the spiritual grace and resultant inspiration during Shivaratri Y2K (http://www.jyotirlinga.com) on the joy of Shiva Bhakti and my quest for spiritual progress. Not finding the time (yep, bad excuse!), this blog suits me fine in quickly adding content... my spiritual forays and thoughts - helps log them too. My spiritual journey started with Hinduism and it's simple stories/ teachings as far back as when I was a 2nd grader, with Lord Shiva and has now found convergence with Advaitism / Duality. The Advaitism gurus like Bhagwan Ramana Maharishi, Nisargadatta Maharaj; they have provided that spiritual boost of energy in many lagging moments and have tremendously influenced me ... little baby steps at a time... that will hopefully all lead upto a final crescendo. The merits of satsangh are many!
