After several years work, Sivakatirswami has completed the new book of 73-Natchintanai. All songs contain an easy to follow transliteration for those whose first language is not Tamil, along with a literal translation. Rishi Thondunathan is on pilgrimage to Kauai. He was instrumental in proof-reading the book.
He and swami discussed the next phase of a long term project to move the songs forward to the next generation. Completion of this book was phase 1, phase 2 will be promotion, phase 3 will be to document the melodies and put these into notation form, phase 4 will be to make English and other language lyrical versions. Thondunathan made the good suggestion that the best channel to make Natchintanai popular will be through the existing music and dance teachers and their classes. Fans of Yogaswami’s songs, stay tuned for the official release of this first edition in the weeks ahead. The first version is only 50 copies, hand printed and bound here at the Aadheenam and is expected to sell out almost immediately.

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.
