It is the end of our phase and a dynamic phase it was indeed. Hinduism Today July issue is off to the printer in Missouri. It is another stunning issue. The three feature stories: Rites of Passage in Nepal, Insight: Hindu Healing, Mauritius Hindu Renaissance are visual feasts and remarkable accounts that convey the richness and power of our ancient faith! Hinduism Today, Tomorrow and Forever!
Meanwhile you will all be seeing the slide shows from India. We have been working backwards in time. Stay tuned for next phase when the story of Bodhinatha’s stay in North India will unfold in these slide shows.

Key concepts: Naalupadasaivam: "A Saiva doctrine that the initiate should pass successively through charya, kriya, yoga and jnana stages and thence obtain moksha." The charya pada, the dasa marga, path of servitude. Sharing the world of God. The kriya pada, satputra marga, true son's way. Nearness to God. The yoga pada, sakha marga, way of the friend, experiencing inner light, sharing the superconscious mind. We talk to God. The jnana pada, san marga, sayujya patavi, union with God. There is no difference between Siva and the soul. God is our dearest Beloved. The three types of temples provide training and experience leading to worship and meditation in the Atma kovil.
