We began a new, and very busy phase today. Bodhinatha gave a great talk on the Self today… stay tuned for this in the days ahead.
Bodhinatha and Shanmuganathaswami leave for their trip to Guyana, Trinidad and points East on Sun Three.
Sadhu Paksha also begins on Sun 3 and the monastery will be closed to visitors and public tours. The monks change their early morning sadhana routine to “merge with nature” instead of a formal meditation.
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.
