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
"Stand strong for Saivism." The nature of life for Saivites is to turn work into worship, to turn the secular into the sacred. Each day give a little extra warmth, humanness and upliftment to others. Every day is a holy day, all day long. We want to follow our religion even in our dreams. If we help someone, we're worshiping. Wherever we are, that's a place of worship. "To the Saivite Hindu all of life is sacred. All of life is religion."
