Gaurang and Darshana Nanavaty visited today. They are both acharyas (teachers) of the Chinmaya Mission, Houston, having completed in 1979 the first 2 and 1/2 year acharya training program held in Percy, California. Both are today instrumental in the Mission’s highly successful youth teaching programs. They attended puja, visited the temple and met with Paramacharya Palaniswami and the Acharya Arumugaswami. Arumugaswami inquired as to the details of their class programs and teacher’s training methods and then shared with them our materials on Hindu history, yama/niyamas and other resources of mutual interest.
"The essence of the soul is Pure Consciousness and Absolute Reality." There are three bodies, shariras, five sheaths, koshas, an inner and an outer aura. The chakras are windows of consciousness. We can find That which has never changed, then we're deep within the soul. That's a good place to look for Parasiva.
