Gaurang and Darshana Nanavaty visited again today with some friends from Houston. They are full time teachers for the Chinmaya Mission and instrumental in the preparation of courses and books for training teachers. Sannyasin Arumugaswami had a long session with Darshana in which she shared their programs.
It was a privilege to have this chance to get to know some sevaks who have completely dedicated their lives to educating the next generation in Hinduism and for us to be able to strengthen our long-time association with our brothers and sisters of the Chinmaya Mission, a relationship that goes all the way back to Swami Chinmayananda’s first visits to America and his relationship with Gurudeva.
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.
