Sharanu Sharanarthi! Hope you all had a great Navarathri and a wonderful Dasara! Celebrating the triumph of good over evil is the highlight of Dasara and just so, we should always be commemorating Basava tatvas that help us choose only the right and keep the evil at bay. Between the previous and current editions, we have had eventful times with a grand Annual Convention held at Tampa, Florida in July 2013 and our regular formal and informal gatherings that only seem to get better with time. As always, the team at Bandhavya strives to bring forth worthy contributions that kindle your spirit and thoughts on spirituality. This newsletter has a feature length article on Shri. Siddeshwara Swamiji, articles related to Basava philosophy, summary of the Annual Convention held in July and different Chapter updates.
“If the sources of water go dry, we could see useless weeds and stone chips, If we go to the bottom of the sea, we could see diamonds and pearls, If the Sharanas of Kudalasangama open their minds and speak, we could see the Linga” Let us motivate one another and enhance our fraternity that upholds nothing but the universal truth in oneself and in each other. We would like you to convey your feedback, ideas for improvement and most of all participate by joining hands through more contributions to the newsletter that will keep us academically and spiritually connected. We could be reached at email@example.com. Thank you and warm regards, Supriya Antin Kaddargi
