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
"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."
