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.
Bodhinatha's Latest Upadeshas: "Not Getting Upset, Viewing Reaction from Higher Faculties" (September 14, 2014)
A measure of how serious we are in making spiritual progress is that we've learned the lesson from experience.

Becoming upset is a temporary suspension of our higher faculties; transmute the energy into the third eye.

"Eight Features of the Natha Sampradaya" (September 17, 2014)
We have to discover that part of us that is the Self. One of the important benefits of temple worship is it softens the ego. Recognize and love a Being greater than us, building humility. Go to Lord Murugan; His worship strengthens the kundalini. There's a power in learning through listening, shruti, that which is heard. Tradition, sadhana and tapas, informs, inspires, awakens potential.
