Today we honored sage Chellappaswami with a special arati in the temple this morning. Our minds pondered with gratitude the gift and presence of the great siddha of Jaffna whose legacy continues on today through our parampara. He said: “Oru Pollapum Illai” “One Evil Thing There is Not!”
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.
