Saivite Hindu Scriptural Fund for the Visually Impaired
Damara


This fund has been created to provide funding to produce Braille scriptural materials by Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami for visually assisted Hindus around the world. If you know of those who need braille books, or wish to make a direct contribution or if you are interested in helping with the braille transcriptions please contact Damara Shanmugan. La Mesa, CA, USA

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."
