Our Hinduism Today photographer in Nepal, Thomas Kelly, has close friends who lived there for 27 years. Brian and Judy Hollander visited today from their home in Alaska, where they are helping the natives with health care. The daughter, Sonja, on the right, just graduated from naturopathy medical school. They were delighted to visit the temple and the Hinduism Today team.
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.
