A preview of this issue’s contents is:
Our fully-illustrated 16-page Educational Insight explores the varied uses of affirmations, those powerful mantras that remold the subconscious mind and open us up to abundance, security, vitality and a spiritual view of life and its sometimes challenging happenings. Find out what Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami, Sadhu Dada Vaswani and Paramahansa Yogananda had to say about the art of living a good life.
Publisher Satguru Bodhinatha Veylanswami surprises us this issue, offering an 8-page Publisher’s Desk instead of the historic two. Why? He wanted to give the Hindu world a much-needed “Introduction to Hinduism” which could be used as the foundation for a talk to the Rotary Club, a keynote at an interfaith gathering, an article in the local newspaper or a class to youth. It’s Sanatana Dharma in a nutshell, and you can use it freely to spread the wisdom of the rishis.
Ever heard of HAF? Hindu American Foundation is an amazingly savvy, if young, institution that is guiding the course of Hindu rights in America and Hindu human rights around the world. Our journalist, Lavina Melwani, dives into their midst to unravel a strategically-targeted mission, discuss their achievements (against hate crimes, in the US Supreme Court, the halls of Washington DC and beyond) and tribulations and bring you their vision for the future.
And more: The New Age in India, Basava The Mystical Ox, Jain Vegetarianism and a Pilgrimage to the famed Rameshwaram Wells that cleanse sins and bestow blessings.
