Satguru Speaks fans can check out the link to the recent talk we just uploaded yesterday, in the side bar on the right.
The Siddhidata Kulam reported on their work today. Yoginathaswami continues working on advance architectural plans for drainage and earth work around the temple. He hopes to have these plans finalized by the end of the year so that we can get bids on the constructions which involved and intricate installation of drains, piping and the lava rock wall around the edge of Iraivan. The rest of his team has been focused on ground maintenance which was set aside for many moons because they had other projects. Meanwhile the “jungle” never stops and invasive species of weeds and “weed trees” need to be taken care of.
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.
