Bob Conti, from Straight Edge Incorporated, an electrical engineering firm on Kauai, came today with drawings and plans to go over with Yoginathaswami and Easvan Param.
Easvan Param has decades of experience as an electrical contractor and is on board the project as a expert consultant to make sure everything goes right and eventually to assist with installation.
After their meeting the team takes a walk on the property planning out where the underground service lines will go, where they will come up above ground to provide panels for the secondary power take off to various building structures.
What is Sivatri and the Nature of Nirvikalpa Samadhi
Mahasivaratri: A time of striving to realize Parasiva. In our teachings yoga is the restraint of mental activity (chitta vritti). Nivritti marga-the path of renunciation. Pravritti marga-the path of action or life in worldly society. Ashrama dharma, a mental resting place within the 4 ashramas in life. The day before the new moon, as in monthly Sivaratri, nivritti energy is strong, an excellent time for austerity and meditation. Six Shum words defined related to meditation-withdrawal: kashum, nikashum, shumnikashum, bishumnikashum, abibishumnikashum, haiiaiibishumnikashum. Drawing energy up in to the transcendental Source of energy. Imkaif: Absence of awareness aware of itself. Nonexperience.
