Special guests, Dr. Hiranya Gowda, and his wife from Nashville, Tennessee. They are long-time supporters of Iraivan and Hinduism Today. They have been especially strong donors to the Hinduism Today distribution fund, giving away thousands of free copies to others through the years including subscriptions for readers in India. Dr. Gowda believe Hinduism Todayh is a force to make people more spiritual and to give them an in-depth understanding of their faith.
Another wonderfully incisive talk by Bodhinatha. Inspired by his visit to Niagra Falls, he reads from Gurudeva’s “River of Life” and delivers a lucid bhashya on the nature of attachments and letting go.
"Stand strong for Saivism." The nature of life for Saivites is to turn work into worship, to turn the secular into the sacred. Each day give a little extra warmth, humanness and upliftment to others. Every day is a holy day, all day long. We want to follow our religion even in our dreams. If we help someone, we're worshiping. Wherever we are, that's a place of worship. "To the Saivite Hindu all of life is sacred. All of life is religion."
