Banu Devi and Chellappa Deva made their yearly display at Phoenix’s Discover India festival, recently. It is always a success for them and the people who come by their table.
“It is very uplifting for us to do this Siva Thondu, explained Banu Devi, “because a lot of people who have been to Kauai or subscribe to Hinduism Today tell us of their experiences and what a great temple and wonderful magazine it is. And we show them and tell them about the newest publications and monastery events. This year, I informed many people of Bodhinatha’s coming to Phoenix in April, something we are all looking forward to.”

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.
