Dear members/well wishers,
It is with a heavy heart that we annouce the passing away of our beloved and revered Life President of the Pure Life Society (Shuddha Samajam), YBhg Datin Paduka (Dr) Mother A Mangalam, at 3.52pm today Saturday 10 June 2023
An iconic figure who had identified herself with the Pure Life Society and built it to the stature it has got to now over the last 70 years, celebrated her 97th birthday on the 20th of May 2023.
That was a very happy occasion for her, after which she fell ill with pneumonia and received the best medical attention possible in Assunta Hospital.
However, complications set in and we have lost someone who personified the Pure Life Society throughout its 72 years of existence.
The funeral will be on Monday, 12 June 2023. Those who wish to pay their last respects can do so on Sunday, 11th June 2023 from 10 am to 7pm at the PLS Multipurpose Hall.
For more details, please call Ms Sumathi at 012-6396505 or Ms Geetha at 016-2175078.
Talking about Man and religion, human beings in general, are attracted to religion, more for its miracles than the substance contained therein. Hindus are no exception. But, we cannot ignore this part in the human psyche. It is important to build up one’s faith in God. But the human being should not stop at this.
One should be able to go beyond one’s faith and see the oneness in humankind by raising our consciousness to the point of Light within us. Swami Vivekananda, the chief disciple of Sri Ramakrishna, had said in one of his lectures in the States, ‘it’s good to be born in a church but not to die in it’.

Purity is the basis on which every religion is built upon. Every religious leader or every creed has emphasised the importance of purity and every religious scripture has stressed this very important element.
What is Purification of the Self?
It is from depths of purity that the best amongst creation becomes objects of admiration and also becomes beneficial to humanity (Buddhi). Every human being is a bundle of energy with the element of intelligence that moves it. Therefore, the human has the capacity to create.

Pongal is a harvest festival celebrated by the Tamil community. It is a celebration to thank the Sun, Mother Nature and the various farm animals that help to contribute to a bountiful harvest. Celebrated over four days, Pongal also marks the beginning of the Tamil month called Thai, which is considered an auspicious month. It usually falls on the 14th or 15th of January each year.
Pongal is also the name of the dish made and eaten during this festival. It is a mixture of boiled sweet rice. It is derived from the Tamil word pongu, which means “to boil over”.

The Mind of Man is too limited
Language is too limited
To describe that Great Effulgence.
If you will only allow THAT to flood your life
You will be an embodiment of peace
The peace that passeth all understanding
You can allow it if only you chisel your Being
By accepting all that crosses your path
With a spirit of equal acceptance
Whether it be joyous or sorrowful
Good or evil, praise or blame
Open your heart and mind In absolute love

If parents play their role well the children's role will fall into place. For example, if the father doesn't love and respect his wife, nothing can work well among the children. If marriage doesn't work out well we can't expect much from their offspring.
It is just like the boss and his secretary, if they can-not work together the whole administration can crumble. So the secretary has to be well chosen and the boss will have to show himself to be an ideal leader, and who the secretary will respect as well.

Would you agree that women are gradually get-ting to rule the world of today?
You see them steadily coming up as heads of governments, corporations, politics, ministries, departments and so on. But, she has always been the uncrowned queen of the home since days of yore. But there is one thing that woman has to guard herself from, when she is at the top; one, the ego should never be allowed to rear its ugly head and two, she has to preserve her self-respect at all times.

Any ordinary man in the street will realize that we have lagged behind in what we term as progress in spite of the many magnificent structures that we see.
Let’s analyze the word materialism. What is material-ism? Is it wealth? Is it riches? Is it abundance? If a nation is blessed with oil reserves can it be called materialism? If one strikes a windfall, can that sudden stroke of luck bring about materialism? Can the abundance that we see around us be called materialism? When a businessman becomes rich through hard work and diligence, is that materialism?

Management of the mind is related to the brain and the spinal cord. The brain and the spinal cord and all other nerves stimulated by various glands, though not visible to our naked eye, has a lot to do in moulding our lives. Mental management involves the manage-ment of the head and the heart. The head is the seat of intelligence or reasoning power and the heart is the seat of emotions or feeling...DHARMA VOL 53.3 HERE
