True to the spirit of the day here we have this gift from Mother Nature. Sadhaka Rajanatha harvested this humungous pumpkin. We call them “Mauritius Pumpkins” because the seeds came from Mauritius. They are strong cultivars--seeds collected from these pumpkins can be planted and grow true to the mother fruit.
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.
