Words from Aghoracharya Vishnuswami Totagopinath Das Suryasu Ram.
“Our tradition of Sri Aghor Vaishnav Siddhanta Rudra Sampradaya knows very well that Lord Shiva and His Shakti are expansions of Sri Hari the personality of Godhead. But instead of just worship and glorifying them we also pay attention to their teachings of devotional service to Sri Hari.
Similarly Sri Guru accepts worship and praises but doesn’t really appreciate it if one doesn’t pay attention to what Guru does or says. Rudra the Aghoreshwar taught Narada muni, Narada taught Veda Vyasa, Vyasa taught Sukadeva Goswami the Avadhuta and Sukadeva taught emperor Pariksit and the rest of the world about devotional service to the divine couple absolute truth Sriman Hari.The concept of duality can never be applied to bhakti the eternal relationship between the soul and God. The individual soul and God are never separated because God is omnipresent. The suffering experienced in one’s mind is always connected to karma, cause and effect, a pattern self created in delusion. In utter reality there is no suffering inside of us. Beyond confusion the eternal nature of the Self shines brightly. You are sat-chit-ananda, eternally blissful and free from ignorance. A diamond remains ever pure regardless of how much dust that covers it.”
