The world religions class of our local Island School paid a visit this morning as part of their current Hinduism studies. Deva Seyon took them on a tour out to Iraivan Temple, then they met Bodhinatha where he answered some basic questions such as how Hinduism looks at heaven and hell.
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.
