Beautiful spring day brought many bright souls on our public tour day to see Iraivan Temple.
Linnea, Christina and Maja came all the way from Malmo Sweden. They are came specifically to Kauai to enjoy nature, yoga and to celebrate Christina’s defeat of cancer.
This is Aparna Sarma (on the right), with her mother. Bodhinatha just signed her copy of “What is Hinduism”. She just graduated from Medical School and fell in love with Iraivan. She has pledged to send her very first paycheck to help finish the temple. She is just starting her residency in Neurology in Texas.
This is Chip, Joni, Kyle, Bodhinatha, Joni, Olivia and Evan. Chip and Joni are both psychiatrists from Lafayette, Louisiana.
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.
