Hindu Students Council to Host Global Dharma Conference 2015 as Part of its 25th Anniversary Celebrations
March 28, 2015 – Edison, New Jersey – Hindu Students Council (HSC), the largest Hindu youth organization in North America, announced today that it will host the Global Dharma Conference 2015 to commemorate its 25th Year Anniversary.
Dharma, one of the most powerful concepts realized by the enlightened Hindu sages and those of other Indic traditions, literally means ‘that which holds together’ or ‘that which sustains a being.’ Going beyond just religion, it is a combination of forces that sustain life and principles that lead to the path of righteousness and harmony.
Global Dharma Conference 2003 featured international luminaries including former President of India Dr. Abdul Kalam, former NJ Governor James McGreevey, HDH Pramukh Swami Maharaj, HH Shankaracharya of Kanchi Peetham, Pujya Swami Dayananda Saraswati, Dr. Deepak Chopra, Dr. David Frawley, Dr. Subhash Kak, actress Goldie Hawn, Tabla Maestro Ustad Zakir Hussain and many other prominent personalities. It was attended by over 2000 people, from around 20 countries and students from over 70 universities around the world. It was also supported by over 50 different local and global organizations, including, but not limited, to Arsha Vidya Gurukulam, Bochasanwasi Shree Akshar Purushottam Swaminarayan Sanstha (BAPS), Art of Living, Chinmaya Mission, Ramakrishna Mission, Sikh Sangat, World Buddhist Association, and World Council of Elders of the Ancient Traditions and Cultures.
The 2015 conference, to be held at the New Jersey Convention and Exposition Center, in Edison, New Jersey, aims to explore and understand the multi-faceted applications of Dharma for the Self as well as for the Society and the World – whether through the multi-faceted systems of Yoga or the invaluable teachings of Vedas and Vedanta. Hence, the conference will feature talks, workshops, performances and music that depict various expressions of Dharma.
With a theme of “Reconnect, Rejuvenate and Realize”, Global Dharma Conference 2015 will build upon the success of the first conference and will feature several prominent dignitaries, speakers, celebrity guests and artists from around the world.
HSC hopes that a deeper understanding and practice of Dharma can lead to a more fulfilled life and naturally a more harmonious society.
