When the Detroit chapter of the VSNA announced that it would host the 2007VSNA Annual Convention, it also pledged itself to endeavor to provide an innovative experience to the participants. During the 2006-VSNA Boot Camp, a loud and clear demand for religious education, exposure and experience was made not only by the attendees but also by the tele-conference participants. In answer to this demand, the VSNA is pleased to present the book “Veerashaiva Religion Through ABC’s and Pictures”. The book has been designed to help the Veerashaiva children, aged, 3~6 years, pre-schoolers, who are born and/ or growing up in the North American subcontinent. It attempts to teach our religion and our way of life through simple style and language – pictures and caricatures and there by help young parents in their quest for ways to impart religious education and create religious awareness among their off-springs. I would like to thank three persons who have made this possible. First of all, VSNA-the members owe their thanks to Dr.. Shiva Prakash and Mrs. Suman Prakash, Bel Air (MD) for their generous financial assistance to publish the book. Secondly, I would like acknowledge the effort, time and trouble that our convention chairperson, Mr. G. S. Doddamani, has taken in coordinating its publication. Lastly, I also would like to express our thanks to Dr. S. Munavalli for coming up with the idea and scripting the book.

Prabhu Patil, President
