A Note • • • • • •
During the 2006 VSNA Boot Camp, the Detroit chapter – the hosts of the 2007 Annual Convention - promised that the forth coming convention would provide a refreshingly unique religious experience for the participants. In keeping with the above pledge, we are pleased to present the participants the book titled “Veerashaiva Religion Through ABC’s and Pictures”. This book is intended for use in imparting religious education to 3 ~ 6 year old preschool Veerashaiva children. It uses pictures and caricatures to introduce our religion and our way of life in simple terms. The publication of this book, as a special offering of the 2007- annual convention, has been made possible by the gracious financial support provided by Dr. Shiva Prakash and Mrs. Suman Prakash, Bel Air (MD). On behalf of the VSNA members, I thank them for their kind and generous help. I would like thank Mr. Sateesh & Mamtha Kavi- for the art-work. Their artistic talent has made the presentation certainly more attractive to our children. I would also like to thank Dr. S. Munavalli for coming up with the concept and writing the book.
