WHY WE WORSHIP SIVA

His worship required no particular arrangement,–He is ever satisfied with two little prayers and offerings,–a drop of water, a leaf of bel and cheek-slap sounds only please Him the most. We have no second thing to offer to Him, the Atman or Soul is the only object of His offer. In His well-known hymn of salutation we find the following expression:–‘We bow Thee down O God, full of infinite and calmness and the root cause of all the three worlds. I offer my soul unto Thee. Thou God of gods and Goal of all.” Surrendering of the Self is His only mode of worship, which transform an earthly being to Divine being full of heavenly bliss.

Chuang Tzu

The Yoga Aphorisms.–Chapter III–IV

Why should I be bound by one system of nerves, and put the Ego only in one body, if the mind is omnipresent? There is no reason why I should. The YOGI wants to feel the Ego wherever he likes. The mental waves which arise in the absence of egoism in the body are called ‘real modifications’ or ‘great disembodiedness.’ When he has succeeded in… Continue reading

The Yoga Aphorisms.–Chapter III–IV
