Hindu monk Swami Vedananda to discuss spirituality


Swami Vedananda, a well-known Hindu monk from California, will talk about the wisdom of ancient Sanskrit scriptures—Vedas, Upanishads and Bhagavad-Gita—in Reno on April 14.

Swami renunciated the world and became a monk in 1970, leaving a promising engineering career. His order of monks belongs to unbroken ancient lineage established in the pre-BCE Vedic period. He has helped seekers of various faith traditions in spiritual practice and renewal over the years. He also leads a study circle at Stanford University.

“Wisdom of ancient Hindu scriptures is fully capable of answering the challenges of modern skepticism,” Swami says.

Organized by the Universal Society of Hinduism, there is no charge for this event, which will be held at The Studio, 1085 South Virginia Street/Vassar, Reno (above Spy Shop), from 6 to 7:30 p.m. After 7:30 p.m., Swami will be available to answer individual/group questions. All are welcome. Tea and snacks will be provided. For information/RSVP, please email [email protected]
