On the Eastern coast of Sri Lanka there is a ray of light amid all of the difficulties being experienced by the nation. It is the Yogaswami Boy’s Home in Batticaloa. Here the boys perform Guru Puja to Yogaswami in their shrine room.
They are an amazingly productive team, young but so enthused. They are learning Yogaswami’s Natchintanai songs, and they do energetic service in the community.
At the end of the Guru Puja, following Yogaswami’s decree at the KKS Road Sivathondan Nilayam, they remain “summa” silent for a time, discovering the Infinity within.

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.
