Alvin Buchignani came to visit today with his wife Francoise. Alvin was Gurudeva’s attorney when Gurudeva first started his organization in San Francisco in the early 1960’s. He was a young beginning lawyer then, but Gurudeva saw a good young man with integrity and vision and adopted him as his attorney.
Alvin was instrumental in helping set up our non-profit organizations and later drafting the by-laws for the Hindu Heritage Endowment. He has since retired but remains a dear friend. Here he talks with Hinduism Today editors about legal issues surrounding the California text book case.
For our "Great Departure" we prefer to be at home in a religious, uplifting environment, in a clear minded high state of consciousness, having resolved all differences and fulfilled all obligations. There is nothing to fear: "Death is a blissful, light filled transition." We then get settled in the inner worlds with like-minded people of similar religious beliefs.
