It is the last day of our phase. The Ganapati Kulam recounted their work which has been nearly 100% focused on wrapped up the July-August-September issue of Hinduism Today. This issue includes a special feature on the Iraivan temple, which is on the cover. It is the first time in many years that the magazine has actually focused on some aspect of the organization that produces it!
A new herb garden is being created today at the monastery (photos next phase), Rishi Valley landscaping is continuing, visitors are a constant stream of Sivaness in His many forms, and the perfection that is, is so apparent. All around us, only to be perceived by the open mind. Jai Gurudeva!
~~~~~~~~~~~ END OF PHASE
Today is the last day of our phase.
This edition of TAKA will remain posted
over our coming two-day retreat,
until Dasami Tithi, Sun One, Sunday, May 3rd.
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.
