Monastic Order - Religion of the Now

Bodhinatha shared with visitors in the temple an overview by Gurudeva of the monastic order and its mission. He also spoke of how Hinduism is more centered in the now than most religions, which are more about a certain history, about a person and events in the past, and also about a future. Being in the present, in the eternal now, is important in Hinduism and in Gurudeva's teachings. The Hindu thinks about being in his spiritual consciousness right now. This is the essence of Hinduism, to keep going deeper and deeper into our inner consciousness.

We're here to realize the Self, have that one dramatic experience where everything that we thought was things is turned upside down, and our whole perspective afterwards changes. That is the purpose for living on this Earth.
—Gurudeva
