March 4th, 2019 is Maha Shivaratri, the great night of Shiva. There are innumerable forms and representations of Shiva that Hindus have revered across the millennia. Perhaps the form most appropriate for us at this hour, is that of Shiva as Dakshinamurthy, the primordial Teacher, the Adi Guru. As we prepare ourselves to rejuvenate and revitalize the Hindu University of America as a place of learning, teaching and research, we must honor the great Gurus and Acharyas, the Rishis and Yogis, the Siddhas and Munis of Bharat, who have kept this knowledge, the “Para Vidya” alive across the great eons of time, through unfathomable tragedy, through invasion, colonization, secularization and unparalleled desecration.

Shiva is also the great God of Death, the Destroyer, who sweeps away into the primordial void, all that has manifested from it, thereby creating the space for a new birth, a fresh regeneration, where the old may give way to the new. Our Yagna of regenerating and renewing the Hindu University of America is a task not unlike enabling a Punar Janma – giving rise to a new form and life
