On Saturday, May 2nd an all-day Saivite Children’s Camp was held in Boca Raton, Florida for the community’s children.
Twelve children of all ages attended the camp which was conducted by Rishi Thondunathan. Children were instructed about the Nine Beliefs of Hinduism, A Hindu Primer, Ten Questions about Hinduism and more from Gurudeva’s book, Dancing with Siva.
The camp began with a Puja to Siva Yogaswami and Gurudeva. The parents of the children also attended the Camp.
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.
