Stepping back in time to Bodhinatha’s recent mission on the east coast, yoginatha has some final photos to share:
“Here we are the home of the Hindu/Jain temple Mr and Mrs. Bhalakia and their friends. He is the president of the temple.”
“Here are sishyas Gaurav, Ripla and Aran Malhotra. They made a 7-hour drive from Chicago to be with Bodhinatha. While with us in Pittsburgh Gaurav didn’t miss the opportunity to drive us around to several events. Little Aran was every happy to be with Bodhinatha and gave us few of his paintings!”
Gurudeva taught us all to see the light in others’ eyes. It is particularly evident in this photo.
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.
