A two day Saivite Children’s Camp was held on April 24th and 25th in St. Louis, Missouri for the community’s children. The camp 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 parents of the children also attended the Camp.
For the field trip, the group visited the Hindu Temple of St. Louis. Satguru Bodhinatha has visited this temple last year.
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.
