Fund Banner


News Update: Damara Shanmugan, the creator of this fund, is now caring for her elderly mother full-time. She is unable to provide braille books. She has asked that Himalayan Academy Publications be the grant recipient and is in the process of producing audio recordings of books by Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami. The audio books replace the braille books. The first audio book is The Guru Chronicles and is available for download here.

This fund was originally created to provide funding to produce Braille scriptural materials by Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami for visually assisted Hindus around the world.

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."
