Maha Sivaratri has arrived. It is the time of deep contact with our Great Lord, a time of spiritual renewal and a re-focus on the spiritual goal of life. Bodhinatha sent us some words of wisdom as quotes from Gurudeva, see below.
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.
