We began a new, and very busy phase today. Bodhinatha gave a great talk on the Self today… stay tuned for this in the days ahead.
Bodhinatha and Shanmuganathaswami leave for their trip to Guyana, Trinidad and points East on Sun Three.
Sadhu Paksha also begins on Sun 3 and the monastery will be closed to visitors and public tours. The monks change their early morning sadhana routine to “merge with nature” instead of a formal meditation.
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.
