I’ve been working on developing my Youtube channel lately and in the process I’m exploring lots of great Hinduism-related videos. I thought I would gather up for you a bunch of examples of people doing regular daily home pujas (Hindu worship). You’ll be able to see how much variety there is in people’s practices. I love how all these videos are real people just showing a glimpse into their Hindu lifestyle. First up, here is mine! I made this one a… Read more

We are doing a scripture study together: reading along through some scriptures and discussing the passages. Here are all of the posts on the previous verses for the Gita: Bhagavad Gita Study From the Winthrop Sargeant translation of The Bhagavad Gita… 4. Arjuna spoke: Your birth was later, The birth of Vivasvat earlier; How should I understand this, That You declared it in the beginning? 5.The Blessed Lord spoke: Many of My births have passed away, And also yours, Arjuna.

I am finally able to put into words something that has been tickling the back of my mind. It has to do with the relationship with God some people have. I think this may be a key difference between an Abrahamic conception of God and a Hindu conception of God. (Though it may be more due to individuals than particular religions. Just because I haven’t met Hindus who have this relationship with God doesn’t mean they don’t exist!) I started… Read more

My friend Raj of Pink Chai Living told me about this capsule wardrobe challenge taking place in May. Amazing coincidence since I just wrote about my principles for a capsule wardrobe that incorporates lots of color and pattern. I’m definitely going to participate! Here is Raj’s post about it and links to the Instagram accounts for the women participating: http://www.pinkchailiving.com/seven-reasons-you-should-join-the-moms-30-for-30-wardrobe-challenge/ I have recently been getting into Lularoe clothing, which is very versatile and because of that I am going to be… Read more

The Seven Stars of Hinduism Book I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Dileep Thatte at the Tapestory event I attended a few weeks ago. At the end of the event he told me that he had written a book called The Seven Stars of Hinduism and asked if I would like a copy! Of course I said yes. I love the concept. It is about distilling the core of Hinduism so that it can be explained and understood particularly… Read more

We are doing a scripture study together: reading along through some scriptures and discussing the passages. Here are all of the posts on the previous verses for the Gita: Bhagavad Gita Study From the Winthrop Sargeant translation of The Bhagavad Gita… 1 The Blessed Lord spoke: I proclaimed this imperishable yoga to Vivasvat; Vivasvat communicated it to Manu, And Manu imparted it to Ikshvaku. 2. Thus received by succession, The royal seers knew this; After a long time here on earth,… Read more

I thought it might be helpful to write a little bit about what you should wear to an Indian wedding. This is a question that I get from the people in my life on occasion. I can’t say that I’ve been to that many Indian weddings, but perhaps more than most. I’ve been to, let’s see, at least three including my own. That’s not a whole lot, but here’s what I’ve gleaned… Many of my tips are similar to my… Read more

I’ve been hearing some rumblings of reclaiming the swastika symbol. As you may know, Hitler stole the swastika as a symbol for his Nazi party. This was due to a misunderstanding about what an Aryan is (and that misunderstanding is still being used against Indian Hindus today in incredibly racist ways, basically trying to tell Indians that all their wonderful philosophy was created by white people, which is ridiculous). I’ve written before about how the swastika has two very different… Read more
