Our Siddhidata Kulam reported on their work this phase. They put a lot of effort into post storm clean up, our garden and the on-going maintenance of our entire physical infrastructure.
On other fronts, we had a very unusual tour day the other day because everyone was very interested in metaphysics and the Pillaiyar Kulam informs us that they sold 5 sets of the Master Course Trilogy and many other books.
On other fronts, Bodhinatha, Paramacharya Palaniswami and Sannyasin Senthilnathaswami are very focused now on preparing for their trip and participation at the Parliament of the World Religions in Melbourne, Australia, where it is summer time now with temperature reaching 110 degrees fahrenheit.
We got an interesting query from a Hinduism Today reader who is using quotes from Dancing with Siva on Newsweek blog discussions.
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.
