New Music Video: India’s Fight for Freedom

“India’s Fight for Freedom” is the twelfth song in Hinduism Today’s History of Hindu India Music Video series. It is a song for children intended to complement the fourth of our popular History of Hindu India documentaries, “Hindu India: 1850 to 1947.” The documentaries and songs neatly supplement the study of India and the Hindu religion in American middle schools. This video covers the long fight for freedom, both the non-violent movement led by Gandhi and the militant approach of Bose and others.

Health is on the mind of nearly everyone these days. There is even a new
greeting in the COVID-19 era, “Namastay healthy and safe.” We didn’t plan it
this way, but the article in this issue on the healing science of ayurveda
takes on special meaning.

Our publisher, Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami, explores another sensitive
topic, discussing whether parents of the future will cease sharing their
religion with kids. No kidding, it’s a real conversation out there, with
young parents asking, “Do we have the right to expect children to follow our
faith? Shouldn’t we let them find their own path?”

Living Ashram in Karnataka state. Boys ten to eighteen are being schooled in
the sacred temple arts as they prepare to serve God and Gods in Hindu
temples now spread throughout the world.

“The Magical Realm of Our Sleep” deals with one of the most rapidly evolving
sciences in medicine. Panshula Ganeshan brings in a wide range of voices
from ayurveda, Harvard medical experts, epigeneticists and satgurus, giving
a rich and rare picture of the nature and purpose (and, yes, the mysteries)

Hinduism In a Nutshell

Cover The July issue will be online the 1st of July. But we wanted to issue a preview of the Educational Insight section. It's a new rendering of Hindu Basics. The most popular part of our website for years. Now available in ebook formats. Perfect to give away or share with friends. Hinduism In a Nutshell
A Simple Overview of a Complex Faith
Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami

Recent Google search on What is Hinduism yielded some 223,000 answers. Many are from outsiders offering their best take; many are from antagonists taking their best shot. Too few are knowledgeable; fewer still are authentic. Rare is the answer that goes beyond parochial sectar-ian understandings; scarcely any encompasses the huge gamut implied in the question. For these reasons alone, the book from which this article is taken was inevitable. Written by devout Hindus and drawn from the deepest wells of spiritual experience and cultural insight, it is a definition coming from deep inside the inner sanctum and depicting in words and amazing images the living, breathing entity that is Hinduism.
