Despite the economic slow down, we continue to get a steady stream of pilgrims as we head into the holiday season.
Mr. and Mrs. Ganeshalingam are visiting from Edmonton for the first time. They are one of the seven founding trustees of the Mahaganapati Temple in Edmonton. His parents lived close to Satguru Sivayogaswami’s ashram in Sri Lanka. His father used to keep a special room for Yogaswami to stay in when traveling about.
Both of them are very taken with Kauai Aadheenam property, having never seen any other temple property that has such a beautiful, serene environment.
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.
