At home today was Sun One of a bright new phase. Yogi Jivanandanatha performs the homa.
Paramacharya Palaniswami presides today and offers all the prayers into the fire. Later he gave a short inspired talk on the presence of God inside of each of us. He shared news of a new short video by the Hindu American Foundation which we are showing below. He then read from Gurudeva’s Publisher’s Desk titled “See God Everywhere” which we copy below along with the Silpi outing photos.
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.
