Third Hinduism Summit in Chicago to carry on Hinduism awareness drive
A Hinduism Summit organized by Hindu Temple of Lake County and Forum for Hindu Awakening will be held on August 27 to increase awareness about Hinduism. There will be insightful presentations, a question answer session, videos and exhibitions.
The Hinduism Summit will feature insightful presentations by supporters of Hinduism from all walks of life, as they share their firsthand account about Hinduism or Hindu issues. Ms. Maya Jairam will speak on ‘Growing up in America and embracing Hindu spirituality’
The Hinduism Summit will provide ample opportunity to discuss questions on Hinduism and Hindu issues with the presenters. Recent Hinduism Summits have answered many a question from curious attendees. For example, ‘What does it mean to be Hindu; can someone not born in a Hindu family become a Hindu?’ ‘When I tried to reason with an artist depicting Hindu deities nude, she refused to take down the painting, citing ‘freedom of expression’; how to stop such denigration of our Deities?’ ‘Is there some significance to the substances offered in ritualistic worship or can we offer something as per our wish?’ ‘I prefer mental spiritual practices like chanting or meditation; do I have to perform ritualistic worship?’ ‘My child does not have proper vegetarian options in the school cafeteria; how can we change this?’ ‘What is the significance of the red dot worn by Hindu women?’ ‘I find it difficult to leave the non-vegetarian diet; can I still chant a mantra or visit a Hindu temple?’ ‘Why is Lord Ganesh worshipped first among all Hindu deities?’
The Hinduism Summit organizers welcome everyone interested in understanding, living or preserving Hinduism to this free event.
When: Saturday, August 27, 2011, 2:30 to 4:45 pm
