This is Bharatchandra, wife Sangeeta, daughters Tulsi, Krishna and Krupa (not pictured) visiting for first time from southern California.
They got a copy of “What is Hinduism” to be signed by Bodhinatha
They grew up in Johannesburg, South Africa and then moved to Los Angeles area about ten years ago.
While in Johannesburg they found our book Loving Ganesha tucked away in a bookstore, right after experiencing a very challenging karma. The book helped them cope with that karma and move on. Consequently, they’ve felt a deep connection with Gurudeva and looked forward to visiting one day.
That day finally arrived and now they want to support Iraivan Temple “forever.”
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.
