TM's Guru Purnima Summer Assembly

Received this announcement from an anonymous TMFB reader. We provide this notice, not as an encouragement to participate, but for the purposes of discussion.

Particularly noteworthy is the highlighted "Rudrabhishek Maha Yagya" -- a traditional Hindu ritual to Shiva, involving pouring offerings of water and ghee over a Shiva Linga while singing the appropriate hymns.

<sarcasm> But, "Yes, We Are No Religion," and TM certainly deserves a place in public schools! </sarcasm>
