Touring the Iraivan Temple today were longtime devotees from New York, Nilufer, Kaika, and Rashna Clubwala and Andrew Meunier. Also Sriram Somasundaram, Mythili Sriram and Akhila Sriram and Hetal Patel from Irvina, TX.
Upon our return to the Kadavul Temple, Larry Rivera who is a famous local Hawaiian musician, insisted that we join his guests and sit a moment and enjoy a song about Kauai called "Beautiful Kauai." Larry's entire family are famous for their Hawaiian music and he frequently brings his guests to the Kauai Aadheenam to enjoy the beauty and serenity of this sacred place.
Everyone thoroughly enjoyed this delightful and spontaneous entertaining moment.
Our last two wonderful guests pause a moment with Shanmuga Kartikeya under the Banyan tree prior to departing.
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.
