Shaiva Siddhantam

In Shaiva Siddhantam, Purusharta goals – dharma, artha, kama and moksha, in Tamil – Aram, Porul, Inbam, Veedu, by implication, extends to a fifth goal, Aathmikha Anbu meaning pursuit of Love. This love is not related to body consciousness but to the Self. It is spiritual love beginning with the concept of dhaasoham - I am your servant to culminate in Soham – He and Me are One, that is Sivoham, the expression of Divine Oneness. That is the inner Satyam, Jyoti and Dharmam. Without dhaasoham feelings you cannot experience Soham. Hara Hara Mahadeva.
