OK, so you, like most everyone else, have never heard of Scribd. Back in the day, we remember explaining to visitors the magic of a little search engine we found useful--Google. Well, Scribd is to printed publications what Google is to search and YouTube is to video, a rapidly growing, free place for anyone and everyone to share their writings--poems, user manuals, vintage novels, scientific papers, government documents, useless scribblings and precious masterpieces. The monks discovered Scribd about three months back, and have been working since to get Gurudeva's teachings on this important site, as tens of millions of people are discovering it, visiting it and downloading publications from it. This month a push was made to get Hinduism Today on Scribd, and that's just what happened. If you visit www.scribd.com you will find dozens of issues of the world's most valued Hindu magazine online, for free. Soon every back issue will be there, and it's all searchable! Thousands of readers have already discovered us here, and we have just begun. The monks plan to have virtually our entire library of teachings here. They thought, for a while, that Google Book Search would be the place, but that model proved too illegible and cumbersome. Scribd is the Google Book Search of the future.

"Stand strong for Saivism." The nature of life for Saivites is to turn work into worship, to turn the secular into the sacred. Each day give a little extra warmth, humanness and upliftment to others. Every day is a holy day, all day long. We want to follow our religion even in our dreams. If we help someone, we're worshiping. Wherever we are, that's a place of worship. "To the Saivite Hindu all of life is sacred. All of life is religion."
