“The Catholic Church made Xavier a saint for his cruelty to Hindus in Kerala and Goa. His mass conversion program targeted the Dalits and fishermen. Because he solely cared about Indian Christianity’s numbers. He used persuasion, gifting, persecution (allurements), etc. to proselytize. Church-sponsored temple annihilations must be investigated to properly represent Christianity in India.’

Linga is the universal symbol of creation and source of everything. This prayer glorifies the Shiva Linga and details its greatness.

10. Welcoming Sri Ganapathy Sachchidananda Swamiji – June 29, 2023 (6/30)

Sri Swamiji is a Sadguru par excellence, beyond our comprehension, beyond our description and beyond our intellect. Whatever we wrote over the years, they only represent our outward description of Sri Swamiji based on our experiences. We cannot fathom the depth of an ocean, describe the luster of a sun, see the invisible treasure hidden in your own heart, and grasp the power and energy of Sri Swamiji. No matter how much we may write and how many miracles we may describe, they would not match the powers of Sri Swamiji.
