Saive Siddanta - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

Pathi, Pasu, Pasam.
God, Soul, World.
Each is a separate entity.
Each is eternal.
No beginning; no end.

God is Lord Siva.
Siva is Sat-Chit-Anand.
He is Sat: the Supreme.
He is Chit: the Intelligence.
He is Anand: the Bliss.
The basis for blessedness
of the Soul.
Siva is transcendent:
Existing apart.
Siva is immanent:
All pervading the universe.

Soul- locked in the Body,
Bonded in World,
To be liberated to God.

World- the matter.
Anavamala- the ego.
Karmamala-the duty bound.
Mayamala- the sensual interpretation
of World.

Soul is bound by World
by the cord of attachment.
Sever the cord
to reach God.

Is Saiva Sect
an off shoot of Veda
or one grafted to Veda?

[Saive Siddanta is the philosophy of Saive, now a sect of Hindu Religion, believed to be existing during pre Vedic period. Now it is predominantly prevalent in South India]
