Here is a departure shot of Bodhinatha leaving the Aadheenam a few days ago. He and Senthilnathaswami are doing well. The have spent the last few days at the Hindu Temple anniversary celebrations in San Antonio Texas.
“Om Sivaya Everyone,
Today was the final day of the anniversary celebration. We were at the temple from 11:20 Am to 2:30 PM. Before arriving there we had a stop at Dr. Ramakrishna Rao’s. He is gifting a Ganesha murti to the Honolulu group who wrote to us. We did a puja to for this murthi.
The keynote at the temple was on prayer and meditation. Much larger group in attendance including many youth. The youth seemed to respond particularly well to the presentation.
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.
