Tomorrow is the holy day of Thai Pusam. The full moon in the month of Thai, dedicated to Lord Murugan. Here a devotee in Jaffna has a vision of Yogaswami at the holy temple of Nallur in Jaffna, where the presiding Deity is just a Vel in the inner sanctum.
Tomorrow morning at 6:00 we will hold our own Thai Pusam celebration with a homa and abhishekam to Lord Murugan in Kadavul Temple.
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.
