As we write, Bodhinatha and Shanmuganathswami are in the air, flying home to arrive this evening. In the next few days we will bring more photos of events during their in California.
See our Twitter posts for photos from the big donor appreciation event in Palo Alto, California. Here is a photo from that event. After offering a Vedic chant, Ananth Sivachariar garlands Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami.
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.
