One of the major events at the Parliament of the World Religions was the Convocation of Hindu Leaders. Of all the speakers, Bodhinatha was the only one with a Keynote digital presentation. Watch for it soon on YouTube.
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.
