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:
"There are three kinds of karma: the karma of all deeds done in our past lives; the karmas we bring into this birth to experience; and the karmas we are making by our actions now."
Karma is an automatic system of divine justice. Karma is self-created destiny; a consequence or fruit of action, karmaphala. By accepting not reacting, performing karma yoga, karma can be softened, mitigated. Seeking the grace of God and guru in the right spirit, the mind focused on the Deity and open to blessings, receiving the intense grace of the Deity in a powerful pilgrimage can actually eliminate karma.
