Anjali Sundaram read her vegetarian vrata vow at the Shiva Murugan Temple in Concord on Thursday. The GGM ladies were happy to witness the event and we all got together at Savitri Palani's residence for lunch. Asha Alahan came up with a great gift for Anjali. It was a box filled with spices and a curry leaf plant that was blessed at the temple. Congratulations, Anjali.

Om Jai Ganesha! This was one of the happiest days in my recent memory! Even though I have been practicing ahimsa in my daily diet, and as well as possible in thought and word, taking the vow was a powerful experience. I was so honored that the priest at the Concord temple made my vrata a part of the whole morning puja. Also, having a group of Golden Gate Mission ladies there to witness it made me feel very loved and supported.
Om Namah Sivaya! ~anjali
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.
