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
There is a continuity between the dominant states of consciousness you are in at the time of death and what you experience after death. The goal is to aim for a higher world. When the momentum winds down that's when we are reborn. We function in about three chakras and from that group we can go up or down. Closing off the lower chakras is the work that needs to be done, it can only be done in a physical body. Keep up regular sadhana, japa, worship and working within oneself.
