Dr. Thagarajan met with Bodhinatha yesterday afternoon and today he worked with Arumugaswami on the Hindu Snakes and Ladders game, translating each of the Sanskrit labels on a huge grid of squares. The original goal of the game was to attain moksha.
Today he had his first chanting session with a group of the monks, helping to correct their Sanskrit pronunciation.
Here he is on top of Muruga Hill.

Satguru Speaks fans will note a new talk by Bodhinatha was posted today. See the right side bar links.
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.
