The Rajamahendran and Nallainayagam families visited Kauai for the first time from Calgary and Vancouver in Canada. They stopped over for one day and then back to Maui where one of their sons is getting married. They both met Yogaswami when very young, and asked Bodhinatha for more details about why Gurudeva came to Sri Lanka in the first place, how he came to meet Yogaswami, etc.
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.
