Rajanatha’s mother Amma Paulette continued her round of meeting all the monks. She was a elementary school teacher before retiring and has a lot to share with Arumugaswami who handles our children’s course material development. She had some excellent insights on the kinds of materials that teachers actually need and use in the field.
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.
