On November 16, Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami presided at satsang at the home of Easvan and Devi Param, one of our Church families in Walnut Creek, Northern California. The traditional pada puja was performed, this time by Easvan and Devi’s son, Chandran, and his sons, Bhajana and Jeyendra.
After the pada puja, Bodhinatha gave upadesha.
Everyone felt unlimited blessings flowing forth from the satguru. It was a beautiful day, inside and out, for all who came. Aum Namah Sivaya.
The soul body plus the essence of the soul, Parashakti and Parasiva, together equals the totality of the soul. The essence of the soul is being Siva and the soul body is becoming Siva. The soul body is maturing, growing. We suffer until we learn to control our body, mind and emotions achieving imperturbability even if we find out the world is going to end tomorrow. Calmness is a platform for meditation.
