In the Mind of the Vedas

In the Hinduism Today April/May/June issue, just now being sent around the globe, we present a profound translation from the Yajurveda. The piece titled "Facing Forward in All Directions" is a beautiful description of Siva's all pervasive self, providing insight into His infinite Being. The above slideshow contains excerpts from the article.

Hindu Testimony at California’s Department of Education

In December, Acharya Arumuganathaswami and Sadhaka Jayanatha spent more than a week in California talking with Hindu parents and then attending the meeting of the Instructional Quality Commission of the State Board of Education. Here, you can download the list of edits that was submitted for the proposed revision of the Framework for 6th grade teaching of ancient India and Hinduism in US schools. This revision was assembled in collaboration with Dr. Shiva Bajpai and the Uberoi Foundation. While in California, the two spoke with over 400 parents and students, mostly at the Bal Vihar classes of Chinmaya Mission. Many of those parents wanted to know how they could help, having had first-hand experience with the impact on their own children of the dismal presentation on Hinduism given in 6th grade. As a result, Hindu parents, students, academics and our two traveling monks gave testimony at the IQC meeting. This is compilation represents what they said. The Framework is to be fully revised by the Fall of 2015.

Early Tai Pongal For Young Pilgrims

During our most recent Maha Samadhi Observances, Shanmuganathaswami gave a class to all in attendance on the sacred cow with many dimensions of this most wonderful animal. In an instant all the half sleeping children in the class moved to the front and started asking many questions! This was their favorite class of the week! After class, one of our Kulamatas created a project where they could channel their appreciation and love of the cow.
