On November 16, Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami presided at satsang at the home of Easvan and Devi Param, one of our Church families in Walnut Creek, Northern California. The traditional pada puja was performed, this time by Easvan and Devi’s son, Chandran, and his sons, Bhajana and Jeyendra.
After the pada puja, Bodhinatha gave upadesha.
Everyone felt unlimited blessings flowing forth from the satguru. It was a beautiful day, inside and out, for all who came. Aum Namah Sivaya.
Religion needs to be of the present. Mankind is evolving spiritually; mass consciousness is rising. When we go to the temple, in the right spirit, contributing devotion and prana, being open to the blessings of the Deity; it purifies the mind. The Hindu religion focuses on the mind; purifies it; controls it, subdues the ego, makes us more humble.
