The five popular Hindu History lessons that have been presented in Hinduism Today over the last 3 years have all been compiled into a book that came off the press a few days ago.
Acharya Arumuganathaswami worked closely with Professor Siva Bajpai on this series over a five-year period.
The book will be released at the Uberoi Foundation Conference being held in Los Angeles this weekend.
Acharya Arumuganathaswami and Sannyasin Sivakatirswami will be attending the second day of the conference. Arumuganathaswami will be giving a twenty-minute Keynote presentation on issues of Hindu history in American text books, the story behind the creation of the history book and strategies for Hindu educators moving forward. Sivakatirswami will give a short presentation on Hinduism Today.
Hindus believe in each individual as a soul, a divine being who is inherently good. We all have a threefold nature: instinctive, intellectual, intuitive. Develop the intuitive/spiritual/soul nature with compassion, devotion, penance. Use the intellect to help subdue the instinctive mind. Guilt is not a part of Hinduism. There is no eternal hell. You have a continuity of consciousness when you transition to the inner worlds. There is no devil, but there are mischievous "asuras."
