Bodhinatha and Shanmuganathaswami arrived safe and sound in Singapore and will be off to Malaysia shortly. Bodhinatha has a number of Satsangs with the missions, a talk with leaders of the Malaysia Hindu Sangam and an all day retreat that is dedicated to members and students.
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.
