Today at Kauai Aadheenam it seems like all the planets moved into constellation “Dynamic Activity” all at once. On the roster was a dry day bringing the much-awaited cement pour of Iraivan’s roof, a visit by Sadhaka Tejadevanatha’s father and sister, more pilgrims arriving for Sivaratri, a bus load of Patels who are attending a conference of hoteliers on Oahu, and then flew to Kauai to visit the temple, interviews by Pacific Journal reporter and photographer doing a story on the monastery and temple and a mini-milestone on the railing of the North Chinna-Gopuram, and also the pouring of the cement for the Anna Purna Gardens Ganesha. And especially bright for today: some good news from Sri Lanka!
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.
