The current issue of Hinduism Today honors all our temple craftsmen. We have collectively given them the Hindu Renaissance Award for 2012.
Brahmachari Jaya has engineered the production of this by our high-end metal etching company in Arizona. The finished plaque just arrived. It will next be mounted and sent off to India. This particular one is going to the stone carving community that is responsible for the temples built by the Swami Narayan Fellowship
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.
