Happy Skanda Shasti to You and all of the Mathavasis. Thank you for the wonderful Muruga festival this week.
In September, we visited Markandeya in Chicago, where he moved earlier this year for a new job. One of the highlights was visiting the Art Institute of Chicago, who had a large Indian and south east Asian collection. This first Karttikeya from Andhra Pradesh really had a presence and the second one was very nicely detailed.
There were a lot of other pieces of Ganesha, Lord Siva, and Nandi, which we can forward to Hinduism Today, if they would be useful.

Bodhinatha's Latest Upadesha: "Control of Thought, Includes Purifying the Subconscious" (January 14, 2015)
Mechanism for major change in the subconscious mind from an ordinary to a spiritual state. Vasana Daha Tantra to clear suppressed memories. Be observant of what's going on inside. Devotion helps us to have the humility to admit our mistakes, to know at our essence we are a divine being. Refining, purifying the subconscious mind. Changing, restraining the nature of the samskaras.
