Thank you to all the devotees and volunteers who attended the Sanjeevani Prasara Event at the Karya Siddhi Hanuman Temple in April. With thrilling bhajans by Parama Pujya Sri Swamiji, three days of enchanting discourses on the Sundara Kanda by Pujya Sri Bala Swamiji, daily pujas filled with powerful mantras and a special Chandi Homa for world benefit... it was a very memorable event, indeed. Be sure to visit the temple soon to see the newly unveiled Sanjeevani Hanuman painting and Naadaanjaneya sculpture.

Enjoy the pictures from Sanjeevani Prasara.
As Sri Swamiji Said to all attendees... Jai Guru Hanuman!

Lord Hanuman: Greatest of Volunteers

Lord Ram and Sita
Lord Hanuman is the embodiment of humble, selfless seva.

Follow in His footsteps...


Be a Volunteer at the
Karya Siddhi Hanuman Temple!
 
Volunteers are needed to make this Temple run: for everyday routine tasks and especially during special events and festivals.
 
Volunteering can mean helping to cook meals (Annadaan seva), chanting the Hanuman Chalisa while preparing items needed for future pujas, helping organize the bookstore, being a trained volunteer at the registration desk, and so much more.

Volunteering teaches you  team work and critical thinking while building a strong sense of community and world awareness.
 
To High School Students (14+ only):
Those selected will be eligible to receive a letter documenting the volunteer hours as official community service. Please ask you parents for permission and have them send an email with your name, age and your parents' contact information along with the preferred volunteering days/times.
 
Thank you for answering this call for doing seva.

Sri Guru Datta! Jai Hanuman! 
Lord Hanuman Story
 
In the last newsletter, Lord Hanuman agreed to undertake the arduous journey across the ocean in search for Devi Sita.

Reminded of his divine powers, Lord Hanuman increased in size and concentrated his mind and heart on Lord Ram.  Sri Hanuman stretched his body and pushed off with his mighty tail. Chanting Lord Ram's name and using prana vayu (yogic breath control), Vayu-putra (son of the Lord Vayu) flew across the ocean towards Lanka.

The sea creatures leapt out of the water to catch a glimpse of Lord Hanuman's incredible flight. Even Lord Varun, god of the sea, watched with delight and wondered how he could be of service to Hanuman on this divine mission.

Lord Varun approached Mount Mainaka, the last of the winged mountains* and son of Himalaya, to help Hanuman. Mainaka sat in the ocean and blocked the passageway between earth and the netherworld. Demons (rakshashas) used this tunnel to come to earth and torment all the living creature here. With the ability to increase his size at will, Mainaka kept the demons at bay even when they tried to increase the size of the doorway.

Mainaka rose up and started to come towards Hanuman. Seeing a giant mountain racing towards him and angry that perhaps Mainaka planned to stop his journey, Hanuman smashed into the mountain with great force. Realizing Hanuman's special strength, Mainaka took a human form and offered Hanuman his help by asking him to take a brief rest before continuing on to Lanka.

Though pleased with Mainaka's kind offer, Hanuman had promised to fly across the ocean as swiftly as one of Lord Ram's arrows and could not stop - even briefly. After gently touching Mainaka's peak and thanking him for his hospitality, Hanuman flew onwards like a great wind.

* Those interested in knowing more about winged mountains may send an email to News@DallasHanuman.org.

Will be continued...
