Shivoham Shiva Poojas for Seekers
At the Shivoham Shiva temple, devotees are encouraged to engage in meaningful prayer; to understand what we say when we pray; to discover the truth – to realize the true meaning of God; to pray to the Creator who is Omnipresent, Omnipotent, and Omniscient; and to understand the true meaning of Shivoham ‑ that “Shiva is in me”. I am Shiva. You are Shiva. Everybody is Shiva. And finally, to comprehend the final reality: “We are not the body, but the Divine Soul.”
What makes the Shivoham Shiva Temple distinctively unique?
The Shivoham Shiva Temple is, in fact, committed to guiding people towards the true goal of life: Self-Realization, God Realization, Moksh, Nirvana, Liberation and Enlightenment. Very few people in this world go on a search, a Talaash for the truth. Most people believe in God, but they are disinterested or fail to persevere to find out the truth behind God, life, who we are and existence. The Lord Shiva temple helps such Seekers or Jigyasus progress on the path of liberation.
Significantly, instead of just performing Poojas that are not understood by people, or that people cannot identify with or relate to, the temple priests share the true meaning of the Poojas with seekers, which helps them go forward on the path of liberation and Moksh. Seekers can choose a Pooja for Moksh, Jivanmukta or Satchitananda, or they may choose a Pooja for the path to Vivek, Vairagya or Mumukshutva.
Seekers can choose from many prayers; the priests at the temple explain the meaning of each Pooja to the seeking devotee, ensuring that the latter understands the significance and the power of the prayer.
