The recent Golden Gate Mission Satsang was full of lovely songs.
Devika singing at satsang; Bhavani accompanying
K Padmanabhan and wife Visalakshi are Venkat and Jayashree’s (her parents) are visiting their daughter in San Ramon.They are from a town near Chennai. Will be here ’til August. Visalakshi sang a beautiful Muruga song. Both mother and daughter sang Muruga songs today which uplifted us all.
In the other pictures, Devika sang and Jothi Param did as well, Bhavani Param played veena. Lots of culture today.
I didn’t get a picture, but Deepa Param spent two days cooking the entire feast for satsang today, served on biodegradable plates made of sewn-together leaves. It was delicious, and a nice break for all the other ladies, who ordinarily bring pot luck.
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.
