We are happy to announce the publication of two new books for young people and for the young at heart. Ten Tales About Self-Control brings us Ten stories base on the Yamas; and Ten Tales About Religious Life stories are based on the Niyamas. They are a manifestation of Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami’s continuing drive to bring core Hindu basics to the next generation in ways that can be absorbed by the 21st century Hindu generations.
A major innovation for Himalayan Academy Publications, these books are being released first as eBooks and include audio! The audio is only available in iPhone or iPad which has the advanced HTML5 Audio an video playing capabilities within iBooks. Later we will be offering the option to read and listen directly in your web browser.
The ability to move forward with digital delivery has been a result of last year’s generous funding via our Digital Dharma Drive. Stay tuned for more exciting offerings in the months ahead and download your copies of the new books here:
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.
