In the upcoming issue of Hinduism Today, Meghana Pisupati of Cupertino, California, tells us about the insights she received during and after climbing Tirupati hill for darshan of Lord Venkateshwara.
We begin a series of book reviews with our own latest releases, The Guru Chronicles and The History of Hindu India.
The book reviews continue with The Blood Never Dried, an honest account of Britain’s past of colonization, and four more volumes, concerned with protecting our faith from outside attacks, traditions of music in the diaspora, ancient traditions of giving in Hinduism and how we can bring them forward today, and a wondrous set of tales of visits to some of the great temples of India.
Stay tuned for the Hinduism Today January/February/March 2012 issue!
Lord Siva is the Supreme Being of the universe, not one of many gods. To Saivites Siva is the supreme being; to Vaishnavites Vishnu is the supreme being. The soul starts with experiencing the world. On one side the soul is pulled by veiling grace toward the world. On the inside the soul is pulled by revealing grace toward God. Resolving karma, maturing in the world, fulfilling dharma, we move toward imperturbability, realization, moksha.
