Dr. Yoganathan and his wife Shylaja are here visiting from Melbourne, Australia. Both are originally from Jaffna, Sri Lanka. Dr. Yoganathan remembers visiting St. Yoga Swami as a boy and states that he was named after this great Sat Guru.
Both attended Sat Guru Bodhinatha’s presentation and talk regarding Sage Yogaswami’s 45th Year Celebration in Keysborough, Melbourne on February 17th recently and then were blessed to meet with Bodhinatha afterwards.
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.
