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
Bodhinatha's Latest Upadesha: "The Summit of All Religions; Regular Meditation" (February 13, 2015)
Religion has a oneness in mysticism but has major differences in terms of beliefs and practices. Unrelenting effort, working on the outside with our faults and weaknesses, allows us to manifest actual experience as a mystic, intensify our purification. We are perfect on the inside. Condition the mind by practicing meditation daily; hold a meditative vibration, samskara of restraint.
