We are back after a three-day retreat. Here are some photos from last phase’s pilgrims.
Jai and Ganga Murugan on pilgrimage from Edmonton, Canada. Longtime devotees, on this visit they were reinstated as formal sishyas in Saiva Siddhanta Church
Kondapi family from Phoenix, Arizona, coming toward the close of their pilgrimage. The daughters Meera and Manu sang beautifully every day; Anil and Jyothi study the Master Course trilogy lessons every day at home. We will be including some of the songs by the sister’s in the music library of our new web site.
Mr. and Mrs. Umakanthan with daughter Janani and grandson Kailash visiting from southern California and New York. Three of them have visited many times before, but this is Kailash’s first visit since being born.
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.
