Damara is the only braille transcriber in the world who exclusively transcribes Saivite Hindu practice and philosophy into braille. Using the award winning books and magazines of her guru, Satguru Shivaya Subramuniyaswami, she carefully transcribes the essence of the mystical Saivite Hindu tradition. In this video Damara talks about her project and demonstrates the braille embosser. Her work is supported by the Saivite Hindu Scriptural Fund for the Visually Impaired, fund #43 of Hindu Heritage Endowment. Read her story at www.hheonline.org/funds/fund_43.html.
