The Hinduism Today team is working on a special feature for the next issue: Hindu Festivals! And of course, no Hindu festival is complete without the sumptuous meals prepared with love to be offered to the Deity as naivedyam and then shared by the devotees.
These are modakas, a favorite of Lord Ganesha.
Soumya Sitaram, a specialist on the subject, provided the initial text and beautiful photos, such as the one for these kozahkattai.
Hinduism Today needs help to test the recipes. Not just to revise them, but to actually cook them following nothing but the instructions in the recipe that will be printed. We need to know how they turn out, if anything is missing or any previous knowledge is assumed and should not be.
Sundal, a feast for the taste buds!

Bodhinatha's Latest Upadeshas: "Patanjali's Yoga Sutras - False Knowledge" (June 15, 2014)
Bodhinatha comments on Patanjali Yoga Sutras, Verses 1.5 through 1.12. The restraint of the mental activities of correct knowledge, erroneous knowledge, fantasy, sleep and memory is achieved through practice and detachment. He focuses up the subject of erroneous knowledge and relates Gurudeva's discussion on how to resolve deep seated erroneous conception from Cognizantibility. Hatha yoga balances ida and pingala. Mindfulness and memory relate. Desire is life. Transmute our desire and change our life.
