There are substantial discounts for ordering multiple calendars: order two calendars for $26 ($13 each), three calendars for $36 ($12 each), four calendars for $44 ($11 each), and five calendars for $50 ($10 each). If you order these on-line, we’ll need to add an additional $5, which includes bank fees, and all postage and handling charges. This postage and handling fee of $5.00 remains, regardless of how many calendars you order, so ordering additional calendars does not incur any additional postage or handling fees.

3. “Applied Spirituality: A Spiritual Vision for the Dialogue of Religions” by Swami Agnivesh (hardcover edition), $20 + $5.00 postage and handling.
Swami Agnivesh is a Swami with a difference, a holy man who is also an untiring social worker and political activist. In Applied Spirituality, he discusses his views on religion and spirituality from the vantage point of his religious learning, leavened by his decades-long work with the underprivileged. He reasons how religion and spirituality can be applied in our day-to-day lives so as to make them resonate in a more practical manner. Addressing issues as diverse as religious intolerance, Naxalism, social injustice, human rights, world trade and women’s empowerment, Swami Agnivesh calls for a transformation of society through a multi-pronged approach that involves extensive interfaith dialogue. Impeccably argued and inspiringly written, the book articulates his vision of what he calls ‘proactive social spirituality’ against the many ills that plague our country and the planet: alcoholism, casteism, religious obscurantism, political despotism, communalism and corruption.
