A Few Good Moms
Author: Gnaana

Wanted: A few good moms to review Gnaana’s new Hindi Alphabet Picture Book for kids. This exciting new book will be our first hardcover title and is designed to introduce children to the Hindi Alphabet and the Devanagari script. Anticipated release date for the book is September 10, 2015.

Reviewers will be asked to comment on the manuscript only and will receive a complementary copy of the book upon its release.

If you are interested in reviewing our book, please send an email to inspire[at]gnaana[dot]com with “Hindi Book Review” in the subject line. Please also give us a general idea of your Hindi proficiency level, age(s) of your children (or the children in your life), and how you are currently trying to expose them to the Hindi language.

Please pass this along – we can’t wait to hear from you!

CLOSED – THANK YOU FOR YOUR RESPONSES!

This resolution is inspired by my younger brother and a report on the effects of meditation in San Francisco schools. Although our family had a good long stint at evening meditation periods last year, we lost practice and got sidetracked. But after my brother reported powerful transformations, and the fact that certain SF schools documented a 79% decrease in suspensions after institution two 15-minute periods of mandatory daily meditation, I’m convinced that we need to make meditation a priority again.

Amazing. And we are in desperate need to improve efficiency in our schoolwork, so the meditation is back ON in our house.

There’s something about New Year’s that engenders excited optimism – and a deep spirituality that makes me thankful for the past and secure in my faith to face the challenges of the future.

I prefer not to think of Hinduism as a religion, but rather as a philosophy – a recognition that it truly is Sanatana Dharma, the eternal religion/cosmic order, that (as per the Rig Veda) speaks of One Truth, though it may be realized in many ways and be called by many names.

So this first post of 2015 reflects my hope for Hindus everywhere: that in this coming year, we are better understood in the global society and that our children are made prouder for being part of the oldest living religion in the world. In the words of Lisa Miller, in her 2009 Newsweek Article, “We Are All Hindu’s Now.”
