At his afternoon satsang yesterday, Palaniswami shared Gurudeva's sutras on the environment and the duties we all have to do our small part to help with climate change.
Our approached, he offered, is based on what Gurudeva called the " the paired principles of ahimsa (do no harm) and the all-pervasiveness of Divinity." With these two in mind, we naturally want to protect all living things, for Siva is within them completely.
He also shared news of the Hanuman in India, shown here a few months back dwarfing Acharya Arumugaswami.
A beautiful sculpture.
Even the details on the back are excellent. In Hanuman's hand will be placed Iraivan Temple, depicting that he carried it from India to Kauai.
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.
