Jungle Lodge Retreat Third Day, morning only, Shanmuganathaswami and I each gave one morning class. Also the morning included a few outdoor activities and the final presentation of acknowledgements, awards and certificates. This was followed by Lunch at Arjunan Subramanian’s home and then a drive to the Pullman Hotel in Putrajaya. After a short rest we toured the nearby Putrajaya International Convention Center. It is on a knoll and from the bottom of the hill looks a bit like a spaceship. It has different types of rooms that hold 3,000 at a time such as an auditorium, convention style room and one that looks like the United Nations for governmental bodies. Also they have smaller rooms in the 100-200 person size range for smaller gatherings. At night it has an outstanding view of the surrounding city of Putrajaya.
A temple helps you be a more peaceful person, live more deeply inside and into our soul nature. Harmony in the home leads to greater tolerance in the community. The emanation of darshan from the aadheenam creates an inner vibration, radiates out, uplifts those who are connected to the monastery. And, their karmas go more smoothly.
