Lovely pix of everyone – yet I prefer not to think of our dear sadhakas as mindless “soldiers” of an “army” – words like these conjur images of such violence that are in direct opposition to these inspirational reflections.
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.
