The Suthaker Family from Edmonton is here for a few days. They are originally from Sri Lanka and moved to Canada many years ago. Both of their two daughters were born in Canada. They visited our media lab this morning and chatted with Paramacharya Palaniswami.
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.
