Bodhinatha writes from Sydney:
"Our 10 plus hour flight from Honolulu to Sydney was pleasant. Welcoming party of some ten devotees met us at the airport, a drive to the suburb of Parramatta which is the second largest business district in the Sydney area and quite near the Murugan temple. They are setting up darshan meetings at the hotel starting Thursday afternoon.
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.
