    Learning about Lord Shiva

    Namiste I appreciate the topic that is now closed regarding Shiva scriptures. Unfortunately, I live in an area where there are no temples dedicated to Shiva. Much of what I learn is from this forum, and www.himalayanacademy.com/



    so I deeply appreciate the contributions of those who share knowledge and reading links. Is there a Shiva organization comparable to JK YOG /www.jkyog.org where they have retreats and lessons regarding growing with Shiva. I have the books from the Himalayan Academy and enrolled in a class from there. They really have been helpful. Just wondering if there is anything closer than Hawaii where the academy is and if so how might I get in touch with them.

    Thank you

    Vannakkam MS: There is nothing that I know of. Within Saivism the 'ashram' concept that you are looking for is practically non-existent. There is a fairly distinct line between the sannyasi path and the householder path. Perhaps in Rishikesh or Haridwar something might exist. Best wishes in your studies.

    There are a few Himalayan Academy (Saiva Siddhanta Church) members who live in California, but I don't know if anyone holds regular classes. The monks would know, if you asked them.

    hariḥ oṁ
    ~~~~~~
    namasté

    'Learning' is both outward and inward facing...
    We come to learn from books and from others - this is outward. Then we come to know ( beyond learn) śivaḥ within our own selves - He
    is none other than our core Being. We are informed yatastvaṁ śivasamo'si - 'because you are identical with śivaḥ' from others that
    have come to find this to be perfectly true. This builds conviction. We then are well-set to find this for ourselves.
    Both knowledge and experience are essential.

    इतिशिवं
    iti śivaṁ
    यतस्त्वं शिवसमोऽसि
    yatastvaṁ śivasamo'si
    because you are identical with śiva
