The Ganapati Kulam is in the middle of the pressure-cooker final days of editorial work on the Hinduism Today April issue. This issue includes a major achievement: coverage of 15 festival that are being designed as “Pagers” for distribution to the mainstream media and then re-formatted for our magazine.
Here is Mahasivaratri. These pagers are designed very simply with an explanation of the meaning of the festival, when and how it is observed. Included are some key points of Hindu philosophy related to the festival and recipes. Of course for Maha Sivaratri the recipe is H20 Water!
This is the Navaratri festival pager, with a recipe for Sundal, chickpeas, (garbanzo beans) Indian style.
For the pager on the Guru Purnima Festival, we took this photo of Bodhinatha’s padukas from our own Guru Peedam.
This is an awesome and much needed project – giving such a beautiful and useful presentation on all the festivals. I humbly bow at all your feet for the seva you are doing with such love and devotion. Rajita
Why aren't we with God Siva? Bondage: anava, karma and maya. The law of karma is teaching us to understand the behavior which is conducive to the unfoldment of the soul. Anava makes us think we're an individual, separate. Through positive experience, use it to accomplish, mature the soul. The sense of a Oneness eventually comes in. "..all are pervaded by love. But there is no all for you alone exist. All are you."
