Sadhu Paksha continues at the Aadheenam. Visitor traffic has been light the past two days. The monks are back to work after a 2-day retreat. Hinduism Today October issue is off the press. Shanmuganathaswami and Bodhinatha are getting for a long across the US and to the Caribbean leaving tomorrow. The Siddhidata Kulam continues to support the silpis are working on the Nandi Mandapam.
The Ganapati Kulam is doing indepth research and development right now on converting books to the ePub format, the whole team is focused on the learning curves, the caveats and the technology necessary to display our books in eReaders. Most ebooks are simple, novel style books with running text. Himalayan Academy publications with their graphically rich content and numerous resource sections are a much bigger challenge to convert.
Hindus believe in each individual as a soul, a divine being who is inherently good. We all have a threefold nature: instinctive, intellectual, intuitive. Develop the intuitive/spiritual/soul nature with compassion, devotion, penance. Use the intellect to help subdue the instinctive mind. Guilt is not a part of Hinduism. There is no eternal hell. You have a continuity of consciousness when you transition to the inner worlds. There is no devil, but there are mischievous "asuras."
