We’re now in Singapore airport waiting to fly to Kuala Lumpur for one night, then on to Mauritius.
While in Honolulu waiting to depart for Tokyo, one of the Chinese Asian Pacific Economic Conference delegates from Beijing came over and chatted with us to learn more about our rudraksha beads and what kind of yoga we do. He said that many people in China are learning hatha yoga, while only a handful are learning about the other aspects of yoga.
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.
