Bodhinatha met today with two Level One Master course students, John Stern and Larry Otis. Both men have years of background in meditation and sadhana and are serious about their spiritual unfoldment and plan to move forward into Level Two of the study.
Larry Otis has called himself a Siva worshipper for many years, having associated with Kashmir Saivism for many years. He’s happy to find Gurudeva’s teaching which offers the fullness of Saiva culture and be able to be in direct touch with a spiritual preceptor. He does sadhana daily, and loves the Master Course
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.
