Every three months the six members of the Ganapati Kulam spends the morning working on what Gurudeva loved to call "the future of futures." With nothing but planning and creative ideas on the agenda, the team discussed the many sides of digital publication distribution: Google Books, Scribd, Kindle, eReaders of all sorts. As Gurudeva looked on, they dove next into planning for the 2010 Kauai Innersearch scheduled for June 12-21. Those who are eager to sign up for this next Travel-Study Program will be seeing an online application in the next week or so.
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.
