Dear sevaks please accept my respectful pranams!

Lord Sri Shiva's atma is OM and is always present in the Linga that Matha Shri
Parvathi worships. So in Atma Linga HIS form is undescribable. This linga is
the most auspicious of all lingas. One of the atma linga was gifted to
Ravaneshwar and Matha Gauri ordered Shri Ganeshji to stop Ravana from reaching
Lanka with this Atma Linga.

Ravana from the ramayana wanted to get "atma linga" from shiva so ravana did
great penances but that is just vaishnava story. in truth atma means Self, and
so atma linga is actually jyoti linga.....linga of light within your heart. it
is the light of god within everyone.

Dear Shri JC ananda please accept adiyen's respectful pranams!

It is better to give stories than give thoughts of vedas for people to
understand. Not everyone has the power to digest the self and Shiva everywhere.
It is Shiva praying Shiva etc.

However I see some venom in your email regarding "Vaishnava Story". This story
is from a puran written by yogi's much much higher than you and me. They
realised that it is mortal fools who have created sects between people for
their own benefit. However one thing please keep in mind, to insult Shriman
Narayana, is to insult Sri Shiva, and to insult Sri Shiva is to insult Sri
Narayana. So their leelas stand to gain more weight than Veda thatvas. Saying
the Word "RAM" makes Lord Shiva move than saying his panchakshri mantra.

So the shiva in me saying in emails, as krishna, or doing arpanam is HE doing
it. So respect that than to say "Vaishnava Story". Just because wearing
Rudra-ka-aaksh, applying holy ash does not make one a devotee of Shiva, LIVE
like HIM to become Shiva.

I have no venom, just objective thought on this. Firstly I am not a vaishnava
so I do not worship narayana/vishnu any more than I worship allah although
people say they are all the same. Secondly I do not accept or follow any
scripture that upholds caste/varna system or sexism which is why I reject many
scriptures. I am vira shaivite. I dont think any yogi is better than anyone
if he says women are dogs and sudras are slaves.

thank you dear friend. you are the first person to say such kind words towards
me. It saddens me deeply in my heart that so many people, including now even
westerners who have begun to dabble in hinduism; support this whole notion of
"new age" hinduism in which all the scriptures of all sects are considered one
religion and the varnashrama and sexism are ok.
I dont know to many vaishnavas or shaivites in traditional orthodox paramparas
that believe there is a "trinity" of brahma, vishnu, and shiva. there is a
notion in the west particularly that hinduism is one unified religion and that
osho and vivekananda and the theosophy society are amongst its greatest
exponents.
it pains me, that this caste ideology and refusal to dig deeper exists amongst the people.
