The Selvarajah family visiting from Edmonton. Selvarajah and his wife are some of the core founding members of the Mahaganapati Temple there and have been here before, but it was the first visit for son Mayuran and daughter-in-law Shankeetha. They were very impressed despite a short visit and plan to return to Kauai for longer stays. They discussed with Bodhinatha the positive power of the temple having only Ganesha as the main Deity.
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.
