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!
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.
