Jothi Param has been with us on Task Force for nearly 2 weeks and returns home on Saturday. Jothi has been with Gurudeva since he was a little boy and is now a grown man and a professional journeyman electrician. He has been a boon for the Siddhidatta Kulam, upgrading our electrical infrastructure. Here he is in the Cedar Room where he installed new track lights to properly illumine up the pictures of our beloved Parampara.
Here is Jothi in our the publications library, a small library of some 3-4,000 books, but amazing in its depth on submuects like the Agamas, Tirumantiram, Saiva Siddhanta and South Indian Saivism and art. He has installed a new switch box. All previously exposed wiring has been moved into conduit.
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.
