All is well at the Aadheenam on this Sun Three. Sannyasins Arumugaswami and Yoginathaswami arrived safe and sound in India. They are taking care of some project coordination in Pondicherry, before proceeding to see Lord Nataraja in Chidambaram and then on to Bangalore to bring home some new silpis for Iraivan.
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.
