I can’t get this image out of my head; what a threshold for Bruno to cross on so many different levels. For one to follow such a different religious path than existed in one’s upbringing (I’m presuming) and THEN to have that choice supported by those that were by necessity left behind with that choice is huge. Seeing this gives me courage to do the same in my life.
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.
