Press release from: Forum for Hindu Awakening

Mississauga Hinduism Summit to Present Hinduism’s Science,

Mississauga, ON. Recent surveys are showing that many North Americans are leaning towards Hindu thought. At the same time, a study indicates that over 1/3rd of youth from Hindu families in North America may be converting out of Hinduism. While the growing interest in Hinduism is a testimony to Hinduism’s science and universal nature, the counter trend shows ignorance about Hinduism’s uniqueness among many born Hindus. The Hinduism Summit (Dharmajagruti Sabha), to be held in Hindu Heritage Centre in Mississauga on Saturday, 28th April from 2:30 to 4:45pm, aims to address these trends as well as threats to Hinduism from direct assaults, denigration and ‘digestion’. The Summit will also provide guidance on the Hindu spiritual way of life. The organizers, the Hindu Heritage Centre and Forum for Hindu Awakening, welcome everyone interested in Hinduism to this event.
 
The Hinduism Summit is a free event. It will commence in a traditional Hindu way, with Vedic recitations, lighting of an auspicious oil lamp and blowing of a conch. There will be insightful presentations. Hindu activist Yogesh Gandre will speak on ‘Know denigration: preserve Hinduism’ while a seeker from Spiritual Science Research Foundation will present research on the ‘Spiritual dimension underlying Hindu concepts and issues’. Other prominent speakers will present about ‘Issues faced by Hindu youth in Canada’ and ‘How to maintain a Hindu identity in Canada’. Bhavna Shinde Hurley, spokesperson of Forum for Hindu Awakening will conclude the presentations with a speech on ‘Understanding, living and preserving Hinduism’.
 
Since the first Hinduism Summit held in July 2009 in Virginia, USA, 13 such Summits have been held in North America, UK and Australia. They have received an overwhelmingly positive response. The Summits conclude with lively discussions between the presenters and attendees, over Hindu vegetarian food and refreshments. The discussions can answer myriad questions like ‘What are the basic tenets of Hinduism and Hindu spirituality?’ ‘How to reverse the gaze of Western criticism on Hinduism?’ ‘Why should one not enter a Hindu temple wearing black, during menses or after consuming alcohol/non-vegetarian food?’ ‘Spiritual healing remedies in Hinduism - e.g. how to identify and remedy departed ancestors' trouble?’ And finally ‘Depicting Hindu Deities sexually or trivially - denigration or freedom of speech?’
 
The exhibition of posters and books at the Hinduism Summit will showcase Hindu spirituality and Hinduism’s spiritual science.
