Acharya Arumugaswami has worked for several years preparing the five history lessons on India which you have all seen in Hinduism Today magazine. These have been reprinted as single booklets and now we are compiling them into a single book which will include a lot more photos. He consults today with Paramacharya Sadasivanathaswami on the content of the new book.
The team has completed all the editorial work on the October issue of Hinduism Today. Sannyasin Senthilnathaswami does what we call “Eagle Eye Review” and looks through all the pages for any final adjustments needed. At this point the pages have been written, edited, read and proof-read at by six pairs of eyes, but there are alway small things that can be improved on.
Lord Siva is the Supreme Being of the universe, not one of many gods. To Saivites Siva is the supreme being; to Vaishnavites Vishnu is the supreme being. The soul starts with experiencing the world. On one side the soul is pulled by veiling grace toward the world. On the inside the soul is pulled by revealing grace toward God. Resolving karma, maturing in the world, fulfilling dharma, we move toward imperturbability, realization, moksha.
