Acharya Arumugaswami has worked for several years preparing the five history lessons on India which you have all seen in Hinduism Today magazine. These have been reprinted as single booklets and now we are compiling them into a single book which will include a lot more photos. He consults today with Paramacharya Sadasivanathaswami on the content of the new book.
The team has completed all the editorial work on the October issue of Hinduism Today. Sannyasin Senthilnathaswami does what we call “Eagle Eye Review” and looks through all the pages for any final adjustments needed. At this point the pages have been written, edited, read and proof-read at by six pairs of eyes, but there are alway small things that can be improved on.
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.
