The other morning we had a light shower moving from west to east just past Iraivan temple. When this happens when the sun is in the east we sometimes get incredible rainbows that seem so close you could almost reach out and touch them.
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.
