I found this a very useful resource for teaching. I am a third year B.Ed student and needed information about hinduism for a project. Your website provided much informtion. I would only offer the suggestion that the names of the gods of explained clear r as i found it quite difficult to clarify them as not being a hindu myself. Thank you.

Hari Sri Nivaasa, First of all I want to thank so much for this divine site. Usually I like to learn more about spirituality, culture, mantra and history. But as I could not read any oriental languages I thought that I must always rely on others to give me some mantras or ell me some interesting history about hindu religion. After visiting your site I was able to have nearly everything that I WISH TO. As I used to celebrate Navaraatri the katha and mantras from the navaraatri home page has been very useful to me. The site is very interesting and meaningful. I would like to have the puja vidhi for Venkateshwara please. MAY THE DIVINE BLESSING BE ALWAYS WITH YOU AND YUR FAMILY: HARII SRII NIVAASA

It is wonderfully compiled site. For people like us who are away from their families (presently working in Saudi) it gives a mental peace and also helps in performing the pujas, which we were unable to do in the past. We feel at home when we go these scri tures, even though we away from our home. God Bless you all who are instrumental in brining out this site. My good wishes in all your future endeavours.

Your efforts to promote Indian culture,religion and traditions thru your site are commendable. However,in your list of Saints, you have omitted the greatest fighter for Vedic theology which is the foundation of hinduism. Maharishi Swami Dayanand Saraswati is the greatest hindu saint in modern times whose whole life was centred in uplifting the liv s of his countrymen,and should be acknowledged with the greatest respect. Thank you in anticipation. Namaste.

Hi everyone. I used to be Hindu, and I used to have no peace in my heart. All the bhakans, pujas, and aartis never could fill that void in my life. Then my happiest day came, when I found Jesus Christ as my personal savior. My life has completely changed hen I found His unconditional love that gives me peace in all matters. He died and rose from the dead so that we could have eternal life. Christ dies for Indians too. His love is the only one that has united people from every nation, language, and ethnici y. Think about it. If your life is not satisfying, I hope you too can find the love of Jesus for absolute peace, happiness, and security. God bless you.

Would it be possible to somehow e-mail me a copy of the recording ? THanks. Kumar Ramachandran.

Away from Motherland & hectic life in Hong Kong, this page gives a lot of peace to the mind. How about starting data base of all the Brahmins (Hindus) round the globe to interact & keep up with our cultural dialogues. (Just a suggestion). If anything we can do will supoort you. Thanks .

Simply excellent. Well done. Keep it up. Please do give hindi > versions of all the kathas and stotras. that would be very helpful as the pronounciation during the pooja time, in English might go wrong.

All the best. Regards, Rekha Kulkarni
