supreme unity of the individual self with the God.
It accepts all the aspects of life in totality and teaches the path of
realization through Divine Grace.
Please contemplate on 4 features of Kashmir Shaivism. Would love to
1) Universal Spiritual Philosophy - beyond the considerations of
caste, creed, gender, etc. Everybody is welcome.
2) Supreme Unity of the Individual Self with God - We and everybody
have emanated from Him and are just part of Him. Rev. Swami Laxman Joo
would explain Kashmir Shaivism as "Para Advaita", that encompasses and
transcends all traditions.
3) Diversity - As I said Kashmir Shaivism accepts all the aspects of
life in totality. No doubt, God has made everybody differently. We
should respect diversity as divine.
4) Divine Grace (Anugarh) - it is independent of human efforts and the
only way to transformation / realization. Grace can come on those whom
He choses. This is a very subtle aspect. What can humans do? Make
effort to be worthy of receiving His Grace.
