Shivani Vinayaga today solemnly spoke out her Arul Sishya vows today in Kadavul Temple. Sitting before Lord Ganesha, with mother Shama behind her (as she always is), Shivani vowed officially to do what she has been doing for a long time: to be a vegetarian, to accept Bodhinatha and the Kailasa Parampara as her spiritual authority and a third vow to tithe ten percent of her income to her religion. Church members witness this profound moment.
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.
