Dr. Narayana Rao and his wife met with Hinduism Today Indian correspondent Rajiv Malik in New Delhi to discuss their collaborations with the monastery.
Each year Palaniswami creates four new graphic AUMs for the covers of Hinduism Today. Today we get a glimpse of his work.
This is a photo from the Big Island from Holly Young. She is an amazing bronze sculptor. We have commissioned her to do our very first bronze. This is a preliminary crafting of it. It is 30 inches long, 18 inches wide and 15 inches high, and is destined to be held in the giant hand of Lord Hanuman when he arrives from India. You will see more of this project as it evolves.
The Hanuman is even bigger than the Dakshinamurthi we have in the gardens!
Today we bring you a special treat. A series of stunning island photos.
That is SO beauty-full. THANK YOU! We are taught that money is ‘that which flows’. Having pictures of water so closely related to the words really helped anchor Gurudeva’s message. What a wonder-full tribute to Gurudeva on Chitra puja – He from whom SO much flows with Love and Grace! Once again, thank you! Aum AUM
Hindus believe there is one Truth, we just all don't agree on the name and nature of God. To compare Hinduism with other religions, you need to ask the orthodox practioners what their beliefs are. For example, one Christian minister explained that he believes we are fallen beings, not inherently good and need to be redeemed or face eternal Hell. Hinduism believes the opposite: we are divine beings with instinctive, intellectual and intuitive natures. Everyone will eventually become a spiritual being and attain God realization. That is about as far apart as we can get in beliefs. There is really no way that the two can be compared.
