Here visiting for the first time are guests, Kudavalli Jaganath with his wife and daughters. As well as Ravi Krishnan and his two sons, Sidharth 4 yrs, and Nikhil 2 yrs. Upon leaving Kudavalli remarked "If there is a place on earth for spirituality, it is here."
Also visiting are Vir andKiran Singh who were especially blessed to receive the darshan of Sat Guru 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.
