Bodhinatha and Shanmuganathswami report they have arrived save and sound in Maryland.
Meanwhile news from Trinidad would indicate Bodhinatha is in for a major reception there. Our Hinduism Today correspondent Paras Ramoutar who is acting as the media-communications coordinator for Bodhinatha’s visit says his lectures will be attended by Some government officials and his visit will be covered by the local newspaper and TV stations.
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.
