With a storm warning in effect for the day we did not know how much we could accomplish before the wind and rains came. Fortunately we were blessed to have a dry morning with just a sprinkle as yet another course of stones was lifted up to the Rajagopuram of Iraivan.
Yoginathaswami and the silpis wait aloft. What an incredible job of scaffolding the Siddhidata Kulam has done to provide a working platform.
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.
