I had the chance to listen to Dr. Parthasarathy give a discourse on Sunday. As part of my goals to become a little more spiritual, I have been driving down to Littleton on Sundays to support the Hindu Temple and Cultural Center. This past Sunday, I sat down and found out that there was a guest speaker coming in who is doing a tour of the United States.
As it turned out he gave a very nice talk on Hanuman. Hanuman is a deity renowned for his courage, power, and faithful, selfless service. It turned out to be the exact talk I needed to hear, as I have been full of fear and uncertainty. I have struggled with public speaking lately as well.
I have heard the stories of Hanuman before, but it is always an experience to hear a passionate speaker. It was even more interesting how the morning unfolded. I was leaving around 10:00 AM, but then my daughters were not interested in joining me. I then had second thoughts and was going to rake the leaves in the front yard. Upon further consideration, I got dressed and headed out on my own. I arrived at 11:00 AM to hear that the speaker was running late. Upon asking what speaker, I was given a brief description and decided to stick around. If my girls had come, they certainly would not have lasted the two hours.
