Uma and Kaysho Singh are visiting from Mississauga, Ontario.
They gave Bodhinatha an update on the work of Dr. Doobay at the Vishnu Mandir in Richmond Hill. The Anand Bhavan Seniors Residence, just a few steps from the temple, has been completed. This was a concept very dear to our Gurudeva’s heart. He recommended that all temples that have sufficient land should build a seniors residence. This greatly enhances the quality of life of our dear Hindu senior citizens who otherwise might experience a lonely and isolated life, especially in the middle of a cold Canadian winter.
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.
