The current issue of Hinduism Today honors all our temple craftsmen. We have collectively given them the Hindu Renaissance Award for 2012.
Brahmachari Jaya has engineered the production of this by our high-end metal etching company in Arizona. The finished plaque just arrived. It will next be mounted and sent off to India. This particular one is going to the stone carving community that is responsible for the temples built by the Swami Narayan Fellowship
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.
