Valluvan, Thilagarani and their daughter Kayshana are here from Malaysia on their third pilgrimage. They have attended Gurudeva mahasamadhi events, Skanda Shasthi pujas, and now wanted to attend Ganesha Chaturti here.
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.
