Left to right Vel Mahalingam, our sweet Karma yogi, the gracious Sundaramurthi Siva Sivacharya and Sadhaka Nilakantha pose for Taka. Sivacharya has been at the monastery for a few days soaking up Siva's perfect peace. He mentioned next visit will be
for five days to really enjoy all the monastery has to offer. We thank you Sivacharya for your visit and look forward to seeing you again.
Sivacharya has a sadhana of daily Atmartha puja. He displays his puja articles. A small Siva lingam is placed in the center
of the puja tray.
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.
