Pravveen and Shanthy Ponnusamy are making their first visit from Florida. Her family is from Jaffna, Sri Lanka originally, while his family is from Palani Hills in south India. They are both very devotional and thrilled to be here. They are recently engaged and look forward to get married soon.
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.
