Today, August 12th, with fireworks and the annual Perseid meteor shower in the sky above, we triumphantly make known the launching of Hinduism Today's mobile app. For many months now the monks have been working among themselves and with experts to create an internet application worthy of Hinduism's flagship magazine and today Apple has put it on the App Store for all to download. For free! The Android version is coming soon to Google Play.
Around the globe there are millions who have no access to the Internet, and whose go-to device is an iPhone or Android. A recent poll claims that 70% of India's digitally-connected population have only a mobile device, without a computer at home. This app is designed to give access to our rich resources for students in Fiji, housewives in Mauritius, yogis in Rishikesh, seekers in Kuala Lumpur and Indophiles everywhere and provide them with a mobile-friendly reading experience of the magazine's one-of-a-kind stories and elegant graphics each quarter.
We hope you will not only download and test-drive it, but share the link with family and friends to enrich their lives and bring the Hindu community even closer. You can download it here (be sure to register so we can tell you when the next issue is available for downloading): https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/hinduism-today/id1023295974?mt=8
We offer today a short visual tutorial on its use. Follow the slideshow and captions for a quick introduction and overview.
There are (wouldn't you know) a couple of glitches that apparently took place in the deep catacombs of binary download, and they are being sorted out. We welcome your feedback and questions which can be sent to: email@example.com.
Offered at the pristine holy feet of our founder, Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami, who loved to quip, "Get the best and forget the rest."

Congratulations on this landmark moment propelling Hinduism Today further into the digital age. Nandri for the compassion, effort and love which now enables many to read about our great religion at a touch, swipe and click. Aum Namah Sivaya.
Congratulations on the creation of yet another amazing tool for probing the beauty and depth of the Sanatana Dharma! Thank you again and again for your steadfast service to our resplendent religion, and for the sanctity you maintain there on Kauai for the benefit of the whole planet.
The blessings of Lord Murugan awaken wisdom which resides in his chakra. "Pray to Lord Murugan to unravel the great mysteries of the universe." When we get emotional we lose touch with our wisdom. Murugan inspires penance to soften karmas and purify the mind, chitta-shuddhi. If you do kavadi in the right spirit, to get the full blessing, have in mind specific misdeeds, apologize to the deity, learn from it, promise to do your best. Visions are still happening. Feeling the energy of the deity is stronger during festivals such as Skanda Shashti.
