The Kauai Branch of the Association of Family and Community Education visited today. They are part of a world wide organization which originally was a Home Economics group for women.It is a branch of the UH Tropical Agricultural Human Recourses. The organization was designed to help women learn cooking, sewing, crafts and other home skills. Now most members are elderly and widows. They have a group outing once a year for educational and cultural enrichment. Some are quite elderly took a ride out to Iraivan on the people mover. The members invited some of their family and neighbors along to learn about Kauia's Hindu Temple and to see the beautiful gardens.
These five friends joined the tour. They live on Kauai, but work during the week and couldn't make it to one of the weekday tours. They were all very grateful to have an opportunity to enjoy a tour.
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.
