A new high end documentary type magazine called “Pacific Journal” published from Kauai, which is documenting the history and culture of the Pacific islands and their peoples, has decided to do an article on Iraivan and the monastery. Here is photographer George Brown on the left and reporter Luke Shannahan with Sivakatirswami and Chidambaram Sthapati. They have a tour of the temple and later a long interview with Paramacharya Palaniswami.
"The essence of the soul is Pure Consciousness and Absolute Reality." There are three bodies, shariras, five sheaths, koshas, an inner and an outer aura. The chakras are windows of consciousness. We can find That which has never changed, then we're deep within the soul. That's a good place to look for Parasiva.
