Our meetings are held every Tuesday at 7pm in the Hindu Prayer Room (Rockefeller Chapel). We start each meeting by singing shlokas and bhajans, and then we take part in a weekly activity; examples of past activities include mediation, reading selections from Hindu texts, and interfaith discussions.
This book was put together by the Hindu Student Sangam and contains basic information about Hinduism as well as a compilation of the shlokas and bhajans we sing at meetings. Bhajans are written in both English and Sanskrit/Hindi, and contain English translations.
This is a list of major Hindu holidays of the 2015-2016 school year.
