swami-vedananda-286x300-2343307-2516868UNIVERSAL SOCIETY OF HINDUISM NEWS RELEASE – Swami Vedananda, a Hindu monk visiting from California, will talk about the wisdom of ancient Sanskrit scriptures —Vedas, Upanishads and Bhagavad-Gita— in Reno on Saturday, April 20. Swami renounced the world and became a monk in 1970, leaving a promising career in science. His order of monks belongs to an unbroken ancient lineage established in the pre-BCE Vedic period. He has helped seekers of various faith-based traditions in spiritual practice and renewal over the years. He also leads a study circle at Stanford University.

“Wisdom/teachings of ancient Hindu scriptures are fully capable of answering the challenges of modern skepticism, and these provide methods to make spiritual truths the realities of life,” Swami says.

There is no charge for this event, which is open to the public, and organized by the Universal Society of Hinduism (USOH). It will be held at the Studio, 1085 S. Virginia Street, above Spy Shop, in Reno. The event starts at 6:00 pm. After 7:30 p.m., Swami will be available to answer questions. Tea will be available. Please RSVP to USOH President Rajan Zed, at [email protected]. Walk-ins are also welcome.
