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
Focus on being a soul, not the body, mind and emotions. When we think of ourselves as a soul we're able to move forward and get closer and closer to Siva. That's the whole idea of Saiva Siddhanta. A negative self-concept is an obstacle. We can change our self-concept through applying Gurudeva's teachings, affirming every day that we are a divine being.
