Yogi Jivanandanatha is our homa pujari today as we begin a new phase.
Bodhinatha gave a wonderful discourse based on his Tirukkural presentation he made in Singapore, focusing on the issue of back-biting and the understanding that what we react strongly to in others is something present in our own psyche that we need to pay attention to.
Kulapati Easan Katir has come to the Aadheenam for 10 days of Task Force. Kulapati just recently returned from Washington DC where he joined the Hindu American Foundation in an effort to speak to our representatives about Hindu human rights in several countries.
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.
