California Hinduism Summit to discuss Hindu identity, human rights and issues facing Hindus in America !

Hundreds have already registered to attend the Hinduism Summit, to be
held at the Sunnyvale temple in California on August 28, 2010 (Shravan
Krushna Chaturthi, 5112 as per the Hindu lunar calendar), either in
person or via the live webcast. This interest is not surprising
considering that the topics up for discussion at the Summit address
many aspects of living as a Hindu in America. Some of the topics are
Maintaining a Hindu identity, Issues facing Hindus, Hindu human rights
and Understanding, living and preserving Hinduism in daily life.
Prominent leaders like Shri Rajan Zed, Dr. Mihir Meghani and Shri
Easan Katir will be speaking on these topics.'

A highlight of the summit is a special “ask the speakers” session at
the end where attendees will get an opportunity to ask the speakers
any questions they might have on Hinduism. More questions will get
answered by the exhibition of posters on Hinduism to be displayed at
the venue and the videos shown throughout the Summit. For example,
children often ask why we do certain things like touching the steps of
the temple on the way in, when we go to a temple and we don’t know
why. The video “Taking Darshan of a Deity in a temple,” to be shown
during the Summit will answer that and other questions.

Knowing more about the unique spiritual science behind Hinduism
concepts and practices can enhance faith and increase the enthusiasm
for practicing it. Coming together as Hindus in America builds unity
and a sense of community to address the growing issues being faced by
Hindus. To foster this aim and to ensure its success many Hindu
Saints, scholars and ascetics have blessed this Summit. The latest
being Sadhvi Ritambhara of Param Shakti Peeth and Vatsalya Gram and
Mahamandaleshwar Sri Sarvanand Saraswati Maharaj of Uttarkashi.
