Today the Siddhidata Kulam reported on their activities. The main focus has been getting the forms ready on the roof of Iraivan for the next cement pour which hopefully will happen on Star 3 (third day of our coming 3-day full-moon retreat). Sadhaka Nilakantha has also almost completely the huge job of pruning all our fruit trees.
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.
