Sri Swamiji Says 
 
Hanuman is a great Saint. Hanuman is the greatest of DASAS (person with humility and self surrender).
 
Hanuman brought Seeta and Rama together. In Yogic
parlance, he brought MANAS and BUDDHI together. How
can it be brought together? By Pranayama and Yoga
Sadhana
.
 
In Kaliyuga, breathing properly is very important. I attribute many health related problems and mind related problems with improper breathing. As you grow, different assets start coming in your body. They are Blood pressure, diabetes, heart problem, etc.
 
I understand that modern life style is stressful. But you can combat it with proper mind techniques.
Why A Tulasi Leaf?
 
Tulasi, one of the most sacred plants in India, is worshiped daily as a means of cultivating one's own consciousness through the power of devotion. It is said to open the heart and mind, increase spiritual love and enhance faith, and compassion.

Your donation of a Silver Tulasi Leaf will be placed permanently before Lord Hanuman and used regularly in Puja to the Lord in the Karya Siddhi Hanuman Temple.
With only 501 available, devotees may choose to honor a loved one with the donation of a Silver Tulasi Leaf.
 
For all the ways to give, please visit Ways To Give on DallasHanuman.Org
 
There are many volunteer opportunities available at temple.  To volunteer at the temple, send an email to seva@DallasHanuman.com with your contact details.
 
Thank you.  Jai Hanuman!

Our Kids on the Radio

Bala Datta children did a great job on the Sanatana Dharma progra, on RSN 104.9 FM on Saturday, March 21st. They chanted the Lingastikam and sang Sri Swamiji's bhajan Sambo Mahadeva. Kudos to the kids and their ever-patient and talented bhajan teachers.
 

Thank you to the Sanatana Dharma Foundation for encouraging our youth and posting the recordings of the Bala Datta kids' radio programs on their website.

Construction Update
 
With the completion of the parking lot, the main focus now is the community hall builidng. The hall structure is already well defined (as seen in the picture to the right) and should be ready for the roof by the end of this month.
 
For the next few months, crews will be working to complete the following:
  • Roofing for main community hall building.
  • Landscaping and Irrigation
  • Signage visible from the road

Thank you all for being very understanding during the construction (enjoy more pictures on picasa) and actively visiting the temple.

Lord Hanuman Story
In the past newsletters, we learned about the circumstances surrounding Sri Hanuman's being bestowed with numerous divine boons by the Gods.

Empowered with many divine boons, Aanjaneya's childish pranks and mischief were bold and limitless. He would frighten people by suddenly changing his size, seeming to appear out of nowhere. He would tease sages who were meditating in the forests by taking their personal belongings or disturbing their puja articles.
 
One day all the saints and sages in the area assembled
to discuss a solution to Aanjaneya's uncontrollable behavior. Since Hanuman was only a child, the sages placed a mild curse on him -- that Hanuman would immediately forget his own prowess and powers! However, since Hanuman's divinely granted abilities were needed for the wellbeing of the world, he would recollect his abilities as others reminded him of them.
 
After the curse, Aanjaneya behaved more like a normal vanara child and studied the Vedas and Shastras very well in his Gurukulam.

Will be continued......
Thank you for supporting the Hanuman Temple and your patience and understanding during the construction. Jai Hanuman!
 
Sincerely,
Karya Siddhi Hanuman Temple Team
