Every few years a duck decides that San Marga is an avian sanctuary. We normally let them live with us as long as they behave themselves. This is the latest arrival. If he or she sticks around long enough we will have to find a name. The last one was humorously called “Sambandar.”
Religion needs to be of the present. Mankind is evolving spiritually; mass consciousness is rising.

The Hindu religion focuses on the mind; purifies it; controls it, subdues the ego, makes us more humble.
