The Unitarian Universalist of the Islands Congregation is pleased to announce that Vyoma Nair will lead a discussion on Hinduism at the Unitarian Service on Sunday, Feb. 5. The service, which will begin at 5 p.m., will meet in Fellowship Hall at the Sanibel Congregational United Church of Christ, 2050 Periwinkle Way. The public is welcome to attend. The title of the talk is “Hinduism and its role in healing our world.”
World events continue to sow schisms among nations and peoples, the divide between rich and poor grows ever wider and the number of displaced persons on our planet is the highest in recorded history. Vyoma, a permanent member of the Board of Trustees of the Hindu Temple of Southwest Florida, will de-bunk some myths about Hinduism and then explore its differences to other faith systems and why its essential values remain designed to heal mankind.
Vyoma’s father was a diplomat giving her the opportunity to live in many continents and interact with peoples of vastly different cultures. She graduated from the University of Oxford studying physics and went on to earn an MSci in physics applied to archaeology. She then founded a company with her nuclear physicist husband, Dr. Shan Nair, which helped US companies navigate the complex legal, human resources, accounting and tax hurdles over 52 countries. She has a keen interest in the science of the Hindu religion and is an active member of the Hindu Temple of Southwest Florida.
