Om Sivaya, Everyone,
Jungle Lodge Retreat Second Day:
Shanmuganathaswami gave one morning class and I gave a morning and an afternoon class. Major group activities were a two plus hour hike to a waterfall and a family evening where the participants divided into groups of 6-8 and gave performances.
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.
