About 40 people attended Bodhinatha’s satsang at the home of Jigisha Patel in Niles, Illinois. In this photo everyone is watching the 2011-2012 annual video update of the monasteries activities. On the screen is the section on the monastery kitchen renovation. Our portable screen works very well for these small groups.
Here is four-year-old Aran, son of Gaurav and Ripla Malhotra. Last year’s visit to Chicago he was pulling Bodhinatha’s carry-on luggage. Now he has graduated to pushing all the swami’s luggage.

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.
