We were delighted and honored to be visited by Pundit Vamadeva Shastri (David Frawley) world renowned author and teacher.
An avowed Hindu, and perhaps today’s most articulate western spokeman for modern Hinduism, he has been a long time collaborator with our Hinduism Today team, supporting the magazine with his advertisements and ever ready to help on a consulting basis. Our publish team has in turn tried to help with his publishing by supplying illustrations and art work.
Last year he married another well-known author and teacher of the Shakta tradition, Shambhavi L. Chopra, author of the best-seller: Yogini:Unfolding the Goddess Within. Together they are doing great work through David’s American Institute of Vedic Studies. He reaches a large audience through the teaching the disciplines of yoga, ayurveda and jyotisha. Shambhavi brings a strong element of bhakti and sadhana to their work together. Check out their web site: http://www.vedanet.com which now offers distance learning course
A prolific author Vamadeva Shastri has release a second edition of his 1995 book “Hinduism, the Eternal Tradition.” It is a terrific read for both Hindus, ardha-Hindus (half-Hindus) and non-Hindus alike!
There is a continuity between the dominant states of consciousness you are in at the time of death and what you experience after death. The goal is to aim for a higher world. When the momentum winds down that's when we are reborn. We function in about three chakras and from that group we can go up or down. Closing off the lower chakras is the work that needs to be done, it can only be done in a physical body. Keep up regular sadhana, japa, worship and working within oneself.
