Dear Members of the Prapatti group: I would like to bring to your attention the existence of the above journal, if you are not already familiar. I write often for that magazine, becaue it has a theme, which is about Adi Sankara"s Shanmathas and also about the Hindu Dharmas and Shastras. The Editor has now moved to Edison, NJ as a part of the efforts to Internationalize that Journal and also to manage the Newly created Sringeri Sadhana Center in Poconos, Pa. At that center,the Icons of Sri Sarada Devi, Ganesa and Adi Sankara have been consecrated and most recently , they celebrated Navarathri in a magnificient fashion with Chandi Homam etc. Last week, I am told that they had a Maha Gayari Homam in the prescribed manner. Two of the members of our group had asked me for the address of the Editor Of Tattvaloka to get the back issues on Hindu Samskaras.I thought some of our members from the Saivite Tradition might also be interested in this Information. You may get additional Information on the above center or the Tattvaloka Journal (25$ per Year subscribtion) at the following address: Mr.T.R.Ramachandran, Editor,Tattvaloka C/O Silverline Industries, 53 Knightsbridge Road Piscataway, NJ 08854 A Summary of special issues (each 96 pages long) are provided below to get an idea of the breadth and depth of the topics covered.
