Two pilgrims visited recently from Chennai (last phase)
Our visitor is a UK-based law professor specializing in proprietary rights, international copyrights, and that whole field. If ever we need counsel on a rights issue, she would be able and happy to assist.
Dr. Chamundeeswari Kuppuswami, PhD, is a Lecturer in Law at the University of Sheffield in the UK. An artist and dancer, Chamundeeswari knew our artist S. Rajam well, and was with him just days before his passing earlier this year. She shared a video of him with the monks. And the monks took her on a tour de force of S. Rajam’s hundreds of works of art done for us over the decades.
Her friend, Aparnadevi, is an IT specialist in San Jose, California, and a wonderful singer.
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.
