Hindu studies launch at Graduate Theological Union
Hindus have welcomed plans to establish a program of Hindu studies at prestigious Graduate Theological Union (GTU) at Berkeley in California (USA). Hindu statesman Rajan Zed welcomed the Hindu studies program. He said that religion was the most powerful, complex and far-reaching force in our society, so we must take it seriously. The first two courses in Hinduism at GTU will be offered in the fall semester, which will include sacred texts of Hinduism, and there is a goal to establish a Center for Dharma Studies within GTU.
