Brahmachari Mayuran is serving in the Ganapati Kulam for six weeks. He has been helping Arumugaswami with the work of making digital copies of the Agama books we have.
First he cuts off the spine of these books.
Then he runs the pages through our Xerox Photo copy machine which has the facility to turn these scans into PDF. Then you can put the books read the books easily on an iPad or eBook reader, if you know Devanagari and French of course. These are critical editions in our library produced by the French Institute of Indology in Pondicherry.
I remember when if we wanted the text of a book or document digitized we had to transcribe it to computer by keyboard. What a blessing to have the current imaging technology to preserve these important scriptures and teachings. Thank you.
Become an accomplished human being; soar into the fourth dimension. Artists experience mountaintop consciousness. Having their source in humble devotion to the Lord, Saiva cultural arts: singing, drama, dance, playing musical instruments and creative skills strengthen concentration and are a form of worship. Religious art is an expression of the soul nature, bringing the beauty of the within into manifestation.
How Can We Be Strong Saivite Hindus?
Gurudeva: "The time has come for Hindus of all races, all nations, of all cultures, of all sects to stand up and let the peoples of the world know of the great religion of which they are one of the staunch adherents." The first way of learning religion is to memorize its tenants. The challenge of living with Siva means bringing religion into the home, into the family, into our interactions with all other people. Kshama-forbearance and patience. Everything we experience we set in motion. Everything is just the next thing to do. Treat everyone in a friendly and inspiring way. Learn our religion and then live by it.
