What you see here to the left is not the Festivals issue reprint, but the cover of a new DVD folder masterminded by Sadhaka Satyanatha in the Ganapati Kulam. This folder contains a DVD with hi-resolution, press-ready PDFs for newspapers and magazines. This has been designed to explain the project directly to editors of mainstream publications, clarifying issues such as copyright, festival dates and, most important, why America’s editors should be taking a closer look at their Hindu community. Thanks to the support of some generous donors, soon religion editors of newspapers all across the country will receive this media kit. You can download a pdf of this folder (21MB), and the contents of the DVD it encases can be found here.
If you want to get on board the Hindu Festival Media Initiative in your community, click here to read about it. Take a copy of the April issue and go meet the editors of your local mainstream newspapers well in advance of the next major festival (see the calendar in the April Issue). The content is rich, colorful, accurate and ready to “drag and drop” into the publication.
If you do find an editor who is interested, have that editor contact Hinduism Today directly by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
"There are three kinds of karma: the karma of all deeds done in our past lives; the karmas we bring into this birth to experience; and the karmas we are making by our actions now."
Karma is an automatic system of divine justice. Karma is self-created destiny; a consequence or fruit of action, karmaphala. By accepting not reacting, performing karma yoga, karma can be softened, mitigated. Seeking the grace of God and guru in the right spirit, the mind focused on the Deity and open to blessings, receiving the intense grace of the Deity in a powerful pilgrimage can actually eliminate karma.
Path to Siva, Lesson 31.
