End of Phase

This was a short by dynamic phase at Kauai Aadheenam and we are headed into another three-day retreat. The Ganapati Kulam reported on their work today. The major focus of the team is work on the festival pagers. These are full tabloid pages, one for each major Hindu festival, which will be distributed to the mainstream media for republication. Imagine the Los Angeles Times running a full page on Maha Sivaratri, or Diwali (Deepavali)! That’s our goal.

This content will also be re-formatted for the next issue of Hinduism Today, so you will all get to see it in our April issue.

Today is the last day of our phase.
This edition of TAKA will remain posted
over our coming three-day retreat,
until Dasami Tithi, Sun One, Saturday, January 2nd

Pilgrims today

Pero and T. K. Venkatachalam from Chattanoga, TN and daughter Sandhya from San Francisco
fulfilling their desire to see Iraivan Temple today.

Joining the Venkatachalms to see Iraivan Temple today are Richard and Dianne Warder from Memphis, TN and Clifford and Diana Knox from Salt Spring Island, BC Canada. All were in awe of the Temple craftsmanship and the peaceful beauty of the land and river.

Delicious Festival Recipes

The Hinduism Today team is working on a special feature for the next issue: Hindu Festivals! And of course, no Hindu festival is complete without the sumptuous meals prepared with love to be offered to the Deity as naivedyam and then shared by the devotees.

These are modakas, a favorite of Lord Ganesha.

Soumya Sitaram, a specialist on the subject, provided the initial text and beautiful photos, such as the one for these kozahkattai.

Hinduism Today needs help to test the recipes. Not just to revise them, but to actually cook them following nothing but the instructions in the recipe that will be printed. We need to know how they turn out, if anything is missing or any previous knowledge is assumed and should not be.

Sundal, a feast for the taste buds!

You are interested in this sweet job (and salty and many more flavors) please write to us at [email protected]

We thank you for your help.
