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.
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.
