Hinduism Summit

Submitted By Kalpana Sharma

Recent surveys show that many North Americans are leaning towards Hindu thought. At the same time, a study indicates that over one third of youth from Hindu families in North America may be converting out of Hinduism by way of marriage. While the growing interest in Hinduism is a testimony to Hinduism's science and universal nature, the counter trend shows ignorance about Hinduism's uniqueness among many born Hindus. The Hinduism Summit (Dharmajagruti Sabha), to be held in Fremont Hindu Temple on Saturday, May 12, aims to address these trends as well as threats to Hinduism from physical assaults and intellectual denigration. The Summit will also provide guidance on the Hindu spiritual way of life and its applicability. Organizers of the Fremont Hindu Temple and Forum for Hindu Awakening welcome everyone interested in Hinduism to this event.

The Hinduism Summit will commence in a traditional Hindu way, with Vedic recitations, lighting of an auspicious oil lamp and blowing of a conch. There will be insightful presentations. Hindu activist Mr. Nilesh Shirodkar will speak on 'Know denigration: preserve Hinduism' while Mr. Amey Ranade from Spiritual Science Research Foundation will present research that shows the spiritual scientific basis of Hindu concepts and practices. Award winning author on Hinduism, Linda Johnsen will outline the central points that Hindus need to teach their children about their amazing culture and how they need to conduct their own life to ensure that Hinduism continues to live on for Hindu youth raised in the West. Bhavna Shinde Hurley, spokesperson of Forum for Hindu Awakening will conclude the presentations with a speech on 'Understanding, living and preserving Hinduism'.
