Sweet devotional songs wafted through the tropical air this morning. Upon exploring the source, we found this family at the temple pool lovingly praising Siva in traditional hymns from the Tamil. It was the senior Amma's birthday today.
Nearby another family is figuring out the telescope.
It points to Iraivan Temple so visitors can see the work from a distance.
Another family takes a photo of the pond and waterfalls from the Media Studio entrance.
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.
