Anil, Devajyothi, Meera and Manu Kondapi family are visiting for eight days from Phoenix, Arizona. They enjoy the grounds so much that they’ve been coming up every morning, singing beautifully during the puja.
The Ranganath and Narayan families from northern California. Ranganatha say they had the honor of meeting our late Gurudeva 20 years ago and he actually gave them a personal driving tour of grounds, pointing out the spot where Iraivan Temple would eventually rise up. They are so happy to see what has progressed since then.
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.
