Arthur Pacheco interviews Gurudeva Part 9
Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami , 2001-02-24
Today's cybertalk is a radio interview with Gurudeva conducted by Arthur Pacheco. Arthur Pacheco conducts a weekly radio show in Honolulu, Hawaii and is also a trans-medium. This interview is in many parts and in the ninth part today Gurudeva shares more with Arthur and the audience about Lord Ganesha's milk miracle that happened a few years ago. Arthur then requests Gurudeva to share with the audience ways in which they may be able to buy Gurudeva's books.
Gurudeva: So then, milk miracle in our temples. We have temples in various parts of the world. In our temple in Denmark, He drank hundreds of gallons of milk. In our temple in London, He drank hundreds of gallons and in Canada, likewise. It was a wonderful event and we hope that ... We don't know what He is going to do next!
Arthur: That is true. Now wasn't it in Denmark, I believe, where they actually caught this on television camera?
Gurudeva: Oh, they caught it on television in every country of the world. In Canada, it was on television. Edmonton, Canada our temple there. In Denmark and also all the many, many newspapers ran stories on it.
Arthur: Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful.
Gurudeva: So, Hinduism is a religion, very much alive. That is why, you have 25,000,000 people gathered together today all in one place, all worshipping Lord Ganesha and the other millions of Gods of the Hindu pantheon.
Arthur: Gurudeva, I have come to the end of my questions and I would merely say at this point, a couple of things. One, if people wanted to find out more and wanted to purchase books or find what they could from the many books you have yourself published, how would they do that? What is the contact point?
Gurudeva: Well, just go to the local book store and ask for the book 'Loving Ganesha', that is a good starter kit. If they don't have it in stock, they will order it for you. We also just released another book called, 'How to Become a Hindu'. Hinduism is a wonderful religion. It doesn't say our religion is better than yours and therefore you should leave yours and come into ours. It does say that if you want to convert to Hinduism, you have to do it yourself. It is a do-it-yourself process and you would be welcomed into the congregation of over a billion people, with open arms. 'How to Become a Hindu', a beautiful book. Or, 'Dancing with Siva', 'Living with Siva' and 'Merging with Siva', very easy to remember. Don't go away because we are still going to give this beautiful mantra.
Arthur: Yes, yes. Well wonderful, that is the very next thing I was going to ask you for.
