Hinduism and personal view

Hinduism and personal view

Private Church Speaker

Sunday, November 1, 2009, 6 PM

I was invited to speak about what Hinduism means to me personally to a private church gathering of people who were interested in other religions of the world. We all (about 8 people) met at a private residence and spoke for about an hour.

I started the speech by playing a musical rendition of the Gujarati prayer song (favorite of Mahatma Gandhiji) “Vaishnava Jana Tho” and spoke about my personal practices and views of Hinduism in general and how does it affects me here in the USA.

Later I concluded the speech with the Aavuyaiyar’s Invocation to God “கடவுள் வாழ்த்து – பாலும் தெளிதேனும்” . Following the song we had Q and A session for about 15 minutes. We ate some cookies and I departed home with a feeling that I was able to listen to people of other faith while telling about what I follow.

Thanks to the person who made this possible.
