Every three years we upgrade our aging computer hardware, selling off old computers and moving up to the current technology.
Normally this places a huge burden on the monks and can take several weeks of our time. This year we have hired a team of pros, Rocket Science Consulting from San Francisco, to do the job for us in just a few days.
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.
