I have been working and trying my best this month with tyemuif and balikana and learning the first 18 alphabetic images. Hearing Our Gurudeva is such a blessing. I have so much work to do yet and this is a very slow begining for me but this gives me hope that I will succeed. Shum is so much fun. It is awesome and a great challenge for me. I pray for the confidence to persevere.Aum Behaishum

For clarity, we need to bring forward a more precise understanding of the different Hindu denominations and how the different Gods are viewed from within each denomination.
