Gaurang and Darshana Nanavaty met with Bodhinatha today. They discussed collaborating on educational programs for youth and the Nanavaty’s described the Hindu community in Texas which has grown to the point where many temples are needed not to accomodate the community’s needs.
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.
