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.
In our teachings we're both monistic and theistic. In the beliefs of Saivism the idea of the three worlds is the basis and key to understanding temple worship, theism. The inner worlds are there to help you. The essence of the soul is already the same as the essence of God Siva, monism. You just have to find it.
