Today the ladies joined Sivakatirswami after lunch. He reviewed our overall goals both for sacred song in the future of our educational programs and for the spiritual life and culture of our Saiva Siddhanta Church Satsang and for our own personal spiritual practice in developing bhakti and as a part of our daily “swadyaya” spiritual self edification. To all learn to sing, be confident to sing and to bring sacred song back into our daily lives as it once long ago. We reviewed some simple techniques to strengthening our voices, then practiced some Vedic invocations and a new bhajan together with emphasis on understanding and visualizing what we sing and turn it into a powerful form of prayer and worship.

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.
