Simple things like walking in the morning sun, looking at a lit candle at eye-level, washing your nose with saline solution and gently rubbing your forehead are all described. I wish I would just start practicing half of what’s in the guide – it’s not like it is the hardest thing in the world. The slideshow really, truly made my day!
Sanjay Patel is a delightful artist. His book, The Little Book of Hindu Deities: From the Goddess of Wealth to the Sacred Cow is a very gentle introduction to the pantheon of Hindu Gods and Goddesses. If you have absolutely no clue about Hindu Mythology, this is the book for you. Need I say that even if you are Hindu, this might make a wonderful gifts for the tiny tots?
The book is 144 pages long, and you can see sample pages and the sketches at the artist’s site. While you are at Sanjay’s site, check out the free desktop wallpapers and the cute T-shirts with Hindu Gods and Goddesses for sale.
