Today was our monthly Ashram Sadhana day. Monks were out cleaning, repairing and maintaining — keeping up the physical environment, which, in our tropical jungle environment, is an on-going challenge.
The Siddhidata Kulam (“SK”) gave their report today. It’s amazing how much they do. Today’s report included a long list of work and repairs done on vehicles, laundry driers, showers, fences, ditch system.
Thanks to the SK for keeping everything running for all the rest of us!
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.
