Brahmachari Vel Mahalingum who has never seen snow before in his life and was amazed to feel how cold it was in France, writes us today with this picture:
Aum Sri Ganesha
Prostrations to the holy feet of Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami
Aum Namah Shivaya Yoginatha Swami
Thank U for your mail
I am leaving Paris for Mauritius tomorrow. We will keep in touch.
In two or three years I’ll be back on Task Force on Kauai.
Today I have been at the Ganesha Temple.
I sent you a photo with the mail.
I have passed great time in Paris.
Now it’s the end of my trip which began with all of you in the monastery with great moments.
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.
