We began our phase today with Sun one Homa as usual. During the retreat, besides the initiation of Siddhanathswami we also had the annual Vaikasi Vishakam Muruga puja which we held in the evening of Vaikasi. Here is the beautiful image of Subramaniyam in Kadavul temple.
Sadhaka Nandinatha after several years of practice on his chanting and puja was the lead pujari for the puja. This is his first big puja/abhishekam.
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.
