The Annapoorna Hindu Sangam sponsored a gala all-day event at the Sacramento Lakshmi Narayan Temple. The trustees invited Kulapati Easan Katir to speak about ‘Growing Up Hindu’. He presented the new eponymous Himalayan Academy book to a group of 400+ enthusiastic souls who are in the midst of raising their children.
At our Himalayan Academy table many were intrigued with the new children’s books, with DevaTrek cards, and the perennial favorite compendium from Hinduism Today, What is Hinduism.
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.
