Fund #43

Visit the Shiva Braille Foundation website for a detailed description of Damara's project.

News Update from Damara as of April 2012: "Just a note to let you know that a small pocket of yoga teachers with blind yoga students (who all live in the Traverse City, Michigan, area) have discovered The SHIVA BRAILLE Foundation. I have been embossing copies of Saivite Virtue for their blind students and sending the teachers the beautiful full-color brochures of the 24 Asanas. They are printing Saivite Virtue off the Internet for themselves as a reference book. It is so wonderful that so many of Gurudeva's books are on-line for sharing with the world. I can't say "Thank You" enough.

So, the braille work goes on. And Gurudeva's teachings live on and on and on and on.

I just finished a job for another yoga teacher in Texas with a blind yoga student. As a whole, yoga teachers are a pretty selfless bunch of gals who want to pass along these authentic Hindu teachings to their students."
