Excerpt
Excerpt: Eaivite Hindu Religion, The Master Course, Book Two has been earned entry into through the completion of Book One. Now we are older and more able to understand this most wonderful religion based on the ancient Vedas. The Vedas, the Holy Bible of Hinduism, is the oldest scripture on this planet. Some say it is six to eight thousand years old. That is very, very old. We can see that in those days the people had the same problems as today but they had better answers to solve them, and the communities in which they lived were constructed to help each individual evolve his or her highest potential. Everyone was looked at as a soul emerged from GodNperfect now and always, way into the future. With this in mind, the people did not carry the concerns they do today year after year after year in their subconscious mind. They were able to let them go because they really knew, and all the elders kept reaffirming, that, yes, they were perfect souls already and did not have to carry the burden of ignorance for more than a day or two. There were no psychiatrists in those days, who would probe the depths of your mind and then send a bill. There were ?ishis and satgurus who gave freely of their wisdom, content with the pittance or bounty they received as a gracious gift once accomplishment had been made within the devotee by the devotee himself after performing the sacrifice, dhana or tapas the guru prescribed. We, the students of Book Two, are not too young in age to realize the need for the teacher. Book Two was finished during my 65 - day Rajayoga Yutra, a pilgrimage through India, Malaysia and Singapore begun in mid - December, 1995. It reflects the feedback on Book One, as well as my observations on the needs of Hindu children in Asia and the countries of Europe and the Americas. Children should study each lesson well, and be responsive to their teachers, understand the words and beautifully color the pictures. Parents also need to read the lessons and study the OAdvice for Parents and TeachersO at the back of the book, so they can answer the children?s questions in wisdom. I invite teachers and parents to send comments directly to me. My are prepared to help you with advice, special training and a professional teaching guide. By the study of our religion, each of us will become a better person. The solution to most of the world?s problem is the need for better people. Isn?t it?
