Om Sivaya, Everyone,

Shanmuganathaswami gave one morning class and I gave a morning and an afternoon class. Major group activities were a two plus hour hike to a waterfall and a family evening where the participants divided into groups of 6-8 and gave performances.
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.
