http://www.jaffna630.com has great panoramas of temples and places in the North. of particular interested for our Parampara are these two for Kumbhalavalai Pillaiyar temple in Alaveddy near the Subramuniya Ashram and Nallur temple.

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.
