|Sri Swamiji Says
Om Aim Hreem Sreem
"The Datta Raksha Mantra has the rare combination for all that you need in life.
Aim indicates Saraswati, the Goddess of knowledge, Hreem means Sakti (power), Sreem indicates Lakshmi, the Goddess of prosperity. Anaghaa removes sins. Datta is the spiritual Master who offers himself to the disciple. Rama indicates the Lord who does not allow the outgoing sins of the devotee to return. The Divine Mother, Vishnu, Shiva and Guru manifest in this mantra.
All of you must cultivate the habit to recite this mantra repetitively, incessantly. "

Temple Hindu School
With blessings from Sri Swamiji, every Sunday morning during the academic year, children come to the Temple ready for hindu school named Bala Datta.
Children come here to learn about deities like Lord Vishnu and the Dasavatar, Lord Dattatreya along with the holy Ramayana, Bhagavata, Mahabharata, and Shiva Purana. Taught in a fun filled way, the kids learn sanskrit slokas, rhythmic bhajans, and good moral values.
Bala Datta kids are also taught about the great saints of India and the significance of many popular festivals from all over India. Language classes for Hindi, Tamil and Telugu are also offered.
Class sizes are limited to ensure individual attention. Most of the classes this year have a waiting list. To accommodate all of the children on the waiting lists, more sessions will be added for coming school year.
For more details and timings of Bala Datta, visit www.DallasHanuman.org and click on Bala Datta or send email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Kids on the Radio:
Bala Datta children will be chanting slokas, prayers and singing on Radio Salaam Namaste 104.9 FM on Saturday, March 21st between 7:00 to 7:30 AM.
You can also listen on the web at http://www.radiosalaamnamaste.com/live.html. Be sure to listen and tell the kids how good they were on the radio.
Previously, on February 21, Bala Datta children did a great job chanting the Datta Stavam and singing Sri Swamiji's Ramam Shyamala bhajan on RSN.

Lord Hanuman Story
In the last newsletter, we learned of Anjaneya's fantastic birth and the details of how the Gods bestowed numerous divine boons upon him.
While Hanuman was being showered with blessings, Vali and Sugreev - Anjana Devi's brothers and uncles to Hanuman - were blessed in a different way. The nephew of Kunjara, Ruksharajasa, adopted Vali and Sugreev as his sons. Following this, Ruksharajasa's empire grew and he became the emperor of many vanara kingdoms.
In time Vali and Sugreev were sent to gurukul for proper
schooling. Anjaneya attended the same gurukul as his uncles where they all grew up and studied together. During this time, he became very close friends with Vali and Sugriva and their lives became forever entwined.
Will be continued......
