Bodhinatha's second day in Sydney saw time for a few meetings with local devotees. Here's Ainkaran from Australia and Chelvi from New Zealand celebrating their first anniversary.
Mrs. Nadarajah is one of the first two ladies to (really) actively promote the Iraivan Temple building project among the Sri Lankan community that now calls Sydney home. Here she is (seated next to Bodhinatha) with her family.
Vasaant Krishnan caught up with Bodhinatha at the Helensburg Siva Vishnu Temple south of Sydney. He's flown in from Tasmania where he's attending university to attend all of Bodhinatha's events. Here he says "Vanakkam" and "Good Day" to his family in Singapore.
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.
