Our Hinduism Today photographer in Nepal, Thomas Kelly, has close friends who lived there for 27 years. Brian and Judy Hollander visited today from their home in Alaska, where they are helping the natives with health care. The daughter, Sonja, on the right, just graduated from naturopathy medical school. They were delighted to visit the temple and the Hinduism Today team.
"Stand strong for Saivism." The nature of life for Saivites is to turn work into worship, to turn the secular into the sacred. Each day give a little extra warmth, humanness and upliftment to others. Every day is a holy day, all day long. We want to follow our religion even in our dreams. If we help someone, we're worshiping. Wherever we are, that's a place of worship. "To the Saivite Hindu all of life is sacred. All of life is religion."
