    California School Text Books

    Namaste,

    Another attempt was made to eliminate 'India' and 'Hinduism' from California school textbooks.

    Hari Om

    Namaste BelieverJi,

    Signed the petition. Thanks for sharing. Take solace in the Truth is the Truth, etc., but the fact that this "stuff" hurts people in the here and now, and believe whether intended or not, attacks what can benefit all, for what purpose?

    Om Shanti Shanti Shanti

    Hari Om!

    Thank-you for posting the update. Refreshing to see the slight progress but completely disheartening to know the final result. Quite simply, it hurts.

    If the caste system were portrayed fairly as it was originally intended, fine, but it is clear that it wasn't. And even at that as the article states, that is hotly debated. The lawsuit is a fantastic first step in getting the school board to accurately portray Hinduism. Let's hope that the outcome is in our favor.

    Om
