Darshan with Bodhinatha

Brahmachari giving a lecture about an important part of Sri Rudram.
At the feet of the silent teacher. Brahmachari Girishji, Bodhinatha and Senthilnathaswami have worked closely together with the Hindu Students Association, teaching at their retreats in Texas the past few years. The ongoing alliance is helping bring much-needed and much-desired knowledge about Hinduism to Hindu college students at participating universities in the Southwest region.
Joining in at the Ganapati Kulum’s morning meeting, Girish had a chance to see how the kulum coordinates their work.
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.
