Today the ladies joined Sivakatirswami after lunch. He reviewed our overall goals both for sacred song in the future of our educational programs and for the spiritual life and culture of our Saiva Siddhanta Church Satsang and for our own personal spiritual practice in developing bhakti and as a part of our daily “swadyaya” spiritual self edification. To all learn to sing, be confident to sing and to bring sacred song back into our daily lives as it once long ago. We reviewed some simple techniques to strengthening our voices, then practiced some Vedic invocations and a new bhajan together with emphasis on understanding and visualizing what we sing and turn it into a powerful form of prayer and worship.

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.
