It is Sun 2 today. Saravananathaswami, the one-man Ekadanta Kulam gave a long report on his activies. He’s working on communications with two young men interested in monastic life in Mauritius. He also processed the new Arul Sishya applications from students in Mauritius who are steadily moving toward full membership in Saiva Siddhanta Church. He’s also working on future travel plans and events for Bodhinatha and working on the new web site for Saiva Siddhanta Church.
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.
