Rajasthan Cow Festival 2014

As our Hinduism Today subscribers are busy reading their recently arrived April 2015 issue, we'd like to offer you a look at some of the extra photos from the feature story. Some of these you'll recognize and others will be entirely new.

Last October our editor, Paramacharya Sadasivanathaswami, received an urgent call from Swami Gopal Sharan Devacharya (Hinduism Today's Hindu of the Year, 2009) to join him and dozens of other swamis for the culmination of a nine-day festival honoring cows at the Shree Pathmeda Godham Mahatirth in Rehsil, Rajasthan, and the nearby Manorama Goloktirth in Nandgaon. The extraordinary event revealed the persistent reverence the Hindu community has for the cow, and highlighted efforts to protect the species and to craft a compassionate place for the holy bovine in a threatening modern world.

Balinese and Malaysian Stories in Upcoming Hinduism Today

In the upcoming April/May/June 2015 edition of Hinduism Today, the grand and colorful annual Kuningan festival of Germany's Balinese community is presented to us by Niraj Thaker of London, who went on assignment to Hamburg to capture their captivating story of community togetherness and cultural preservation. Lavina Melwani brings us the story of Datuk Ramli Ibrahim, a Malay Muslim who has become an icon of Bharatanatyam and Odissi dance, traversing the world and stunning audiences with glimpses into the world of the Gods and Goddesses.

Niraj and Jing Baxi visit the Pillaiyar Kulam

Shanmuganathaswami (right) and Kaivalyanathaswami welcomed the Baxis to the Pillaiyar Kulam recently. Niraj had some very good ideas for promoting Hinduism Today, which he feels is still far too little known. This was helpful as we also keep searching for avenues to let more Hindus and like-minded souls know of the magazine's existence. As one lifetime subscriber put it: "You never know when a holy word will find its way to someone's heart."
