Everyone at the Aadheenam is very focused. Bodhinatha leaves for Asia soon. Very early each morning he rises and works on his presentations. The Ganapati Kulam fills in with graphics. The current one in progress comprises 500 plus slides in a Keynote presentation on the Tirukkural!
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.
