Official website of Tiruchendur Murugan Temple in Tamil Nadu

TiruchendurMuruganTemple is one of the most famous shrines dedicated to Lord Muruga or Subrahmanya in Tamil Nadu. It is believed to be one of the six chosen spots of Lord Muruga and he is believed to have camped here before fighting and defeating demon Surapadma. TiruchendurMuruganTemple now has an official website with numerous facilities like e-seva, e-accommodation, e-hundi, e-donation and e-sales. A major highlight of the website is a flash-based virtual puja and the photo gallery. You need flash 8 installed to view the website properly. Perhaps the drawback of website is also that there is too much of flash. This might cause huge difficulties in viewing the website for many Indians who still use dial-up and narrowband. Those of you using older versions of Internet Explorer also might find it difficult to open the site.

Osho Thoughts on mind – the extrovert and introvert

The below is part of the above, the beginning of the above; up is nothing but the extension of down.
