Balaji Temple Hinduism Summit to present Hinduism’s science, denigration and ‘digestion’
The Hinduism Summit, organised by 'Forum for Hindu Awakening' and ‘Balaji Mandir’, Bridgewater, NJ, aims to promote an understanding about the unique science behind Hinduism concepts and practices, and give practical guidance on living Hinduism.
Bridgewater, NJ. Recent surveys are showing that a majority of Americans are leaning towards Hindu thought. At the same time, a study indicates that over 1/3rd of youth from Hindu families in America may be converting out of Hinduism. 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 Balaji Temple Community Hall in Bridgewater on Saturday, 10th March from 2 to 5:15pm, aims to address these trends as well as threats to Hinduism from direct assaults, denigration and ‘digestion’
The Hinduism Summit is a free event. It will commence in a traditional Hindu way, with Vedic recitations, lighting of an auspicious oil lamp and blowing of a conch. There will be eye opening presentations. Hindu activist, Jitendra Oulkar will speak on ‘Know denigration:
