Someone sends this photo today of a newsstand in New York City, showing that Hinduism Today magazine is out there, right along with the Bollywood and social periodicals. That might encourage others to get the magazine on the shelves in other communities.
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.
