Years ago after the last Hurricane, Gurudeva was inspired to get giant shipping containers to serve as storage facilities. It was a smart, inexpensive and efficient way to provide for our storage needs quickly and effectively without making huge committments to building construction. We still have many of them.
With the new Minimela Information center now serving to hold a lot of publications inventory on the second floor, we retired this container. He was dubbed “Jnana dana Container” because he held all the literature that we gave away for free. Today we say “Sionara, Goodbye” to this old, portable, “Knowledge Giving” warehouse.
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.
