Gaurang and Darshana Nanavaty visited again today with some friends from Houston. They are full time teachers for the Chinmaya Mission and instrumental in the preparation of courses and books for training teachers. Sannyasin Arumugaswami had a long session with Darshana in which she shared their programs.
It was a privilege to have this chance to get to know some sevaks who have completely dedicated their lives to educating the next generation in Hinduism and for us to be able to strengthen our long-time association with our brothers and sisters of the Chinmaya Mission, a relationship that goes all the way back to Swami Chinmayananda’s first visits to America and his relationship with Gurudeva.
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.
