Sri Swamiji Says 
 
Matru Runa (emotional debt owned to mother) can never be paid back. 
 
In Matru Panchaka, Sankara Bhagavatpada describes the trouble we cause the mother while in her womb. Rama and Krishna had very high respect for their mothers.
 
Mother is the living God in everyone's life.

Construction Update
 
The Community Hall Builidng structure progressed on schedule and the roof is being completed now.
 
For the next couple months, crews will be working to complete the internals of the hall and the landscaping and irrigation.

The excitement is increasing as everyone sees the building become a reality. Thank you all for being very understanding during the construction (enjoy more pictures on picasa) and actively visiting the temple through it all.

Lord Hanuman Story

In the last newsletter, we learned that Sri Hanuman was cursed to forget his divine boons to stop his extreme mischief and help the progress of his formal education. But he would recall his skills when others reminded him of his divine abilities.
 
As time passed, Anjana Devi told her son to seek out Lord Surya to further his education and spoke of how he flew up to the Sun when he was a mere baby! Hearing his mother's words, Hanuman recalled his ability to fly.

Anjaneya jumped up to the sky toward Lord Surya's chariot. But Lord Surya decided to test his potential disciple and asked how he could possibly teach Hanuman? Since the well-being of the world depended on Lord Surya to always be moving, he could not stop to teach Hanuman. Hearing this, Hanuman immediately stood in front of Surya's chariot and obstructed his passage. Pleased by Hanuman's boldness, Lord Surya conceded this point.

Then Surya raised another concern. How would Anjaneya hear the lessons through the deafening noise that emanates from movement of the chariot? But Hanuman had a plan! Since the noise of the chariot is only on the outside of the chariot, Hanuman could extend his neck to be inside the chariot so that he would be close enough to hear the lessons fully and clearly. And though the chariot was ever moving, Hanuman proclaimed that he would run along at the perfect speed to keep up with Lord Surya's chariot. Thus Lord Surya's divine work could continue even while teaching Hanuman.

Delighted by Hanuman's mental prowess, Lord Surya happily agreed to be Hanuman's Guru and started the lessons immediately. Running along Surya's chariot which travels at the speed of light, Hanuman, an excellent disciple, finished his first day of education.

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
