    The Philosophy......

    Philosophy of Theistic Pluralism holds that:

     God, Soul and the world are real and eternal(Pati, Pasu,Pasam)

     The aim of religion is to get rid of Pasam (Bondage desires) and for the soul to attain Moksha (liberation)

     Bhakti (Devotion to God) and Gods Grace (Arul) are Central to Saivite Hinduism.
