Our Hinduism Today web site has undergone a major upgrade.
For the “web geeks” among us, we use the XOOPs PHP Content Management System and this upgrade was to the latest XOOPS version 2.5. The theme does not look much different than before but is more refined, runs much faster and now sports a a really cool rotating video presentation on the home page. Paramacharya Palaniswami used his Keynote skills to highlight current issue features and Senthilnathaswami ported this to video.
Hindu Press International on the web site will be back online this afternoon, having been off the site for some time during the upgrade.
Bodhinatha continues with his weekly series of commentaries on The Path to Siva. In this past Sun One talk, he elucidates the four key beliefs in Hinduism, the three pillars of Sanatana Dharma and Gurudeva's three stages of faith. Primary to Hinduism is the key belief that God is within each of us. To have a well-rounded understanding and experience of Hinduism, to make spiritual progress, adhyatma vikasha, we need scripture, humility, temple worship, devotion. To fully experience God we need the guru to give the spark for meditation and deeper wisdom.
