We are catching up with Bodhinatha’s Sun One upadeshas. Another one was posted today (see the “Inspired Talk” link in the sidebar at right). He has been focusing lately on short, concise talks on monism and theism. Don’t miss them!
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.
