Thank you for sharing the special pictures of Gurudeva taken in Jaffna, Sri Lanka during the 1982-83 inner search. Ingenious/truly original form of transportation provided to Gurudeva! A remarkable Satguru with his true followers!
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.
