Sun two: it was tour day and over 120 people came. Bodhinatha signed many books in the Minimela. “Some tour days everyone wants crystal Ganeshas to be blessed; then on another day there are lots of book buyers.”
One never knows who will come and what their interests are.
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.
