Today the Ganapati Kulam shared news on their activities. They have completed the final proofreading and corrections on the January/February/March issue of Hinduism Today, and the magazine PDF files have been sent to the printer in Kansas City, Missouri. It is another fabulous, beautiful, rich, unique issue of the world’s top Hindu publication.
On other fronts, Paramacharya Palaniswami and Sannyasin Senthilnathaswami are working very hard on advance preparations for their trip to Australia when they will be accompanying Bodhinatha for the Parliament of the World’s Religions in Melbourne, December 3-9.
Sadhaka Satyanatha is working on a special project that has been in the works for several years and is finally coming to fruition. This is the creation of “pagers” covering Hindu festivals that can be used in their finished form by newspapers across the country. We will be hearing more about that in the days ahead.
Anticipation of the Mahasamadhi Observances next week are high, and pilgrims have already begun to arrive.
Focus on being a soul, not the body, mind and emotions. When we think of ourselves as a soul we're able to move forward and get closer and closer to Siva. That's the whole idea of Saiva Siddhanta. A negative self-concept is an obstacle. We can change our self-concept through applying Gurudeva's teachings, affirming every day that we are a divine being.
