The Suthaker Family from Edmonton is here for a few days. They are originally from Sri Lanka and moved to Canada many years ago. Both of their two daughters were born in Canada. They visited our media lab this morning and chatted with Paramacharya Palaniswami.
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.
