In the back is Gurudeva’s picture, of him doing abhishekam to the Siva Lingam. It was in 1983 that he first order an Apple II computer, including one for the monks in San Francisco, who he told to go out and go to classes on how to use it. We have come a long way since then.
Senthilnathaswami is struck by how easy it was to go to the What Is Hinduism, web page, download the PDFs and how fabulous they look on the iPad.
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.
