Mr. Rajnikant B. Acharya and his wife, to Bodhinatha’s left, are visiting from Nairobi, Kenya. Rajnikant is on the building committee of a Siva Temple now under construction in Nairobi. He invited Bodhinatha to be present for the opening ceremonies at the end of next year. He is here with his daughters, grandchildren and son in law who are all living in the USA.
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.
