Emory Day of Giving coming soon, March 22-23, 2023!
Hindu Life

Hindu Chaplaincy at Emory aims to support Hindu students, faculty, staff and alumni in their spiritual and religious flourishing. While supporting individuals across campus, I also work closely with our Hindu students Association in celebrating Hindu festivals, hosting discussions and facilitating worship for the Emory community. 

The coming months bring us much excitement as we continue working on Emory’s new Interfaith Center. The building re-design and construction phases have already begun, and we are now excited to arrange for our Hindu, Sikh, Jain and Buddhist communities to have designated altars and religious goods in the center. These will be custom made to reflect the beauty and imagery of these traditions, while also having the capability of being mobile so that they can be accessed for gatherings in different parts of the Interfaith Center.

As we continue to work with our wonderful artisan on the design of these new shrines and altars, we welcome with gratitude your continued support in our efforts to raise $7,000 for each custom-made altar and related religious goods.

This academic year has brought much promise and warmth to our communities as we've restored many of our gathering traditions in safe and mindful ways. After a few years of modified celebrations, this year the Hindu Students Association opened the semester with a beautiful, interactive Ganesh Chaturthi Puja. Over 80 Emory community members attended the Puja and many stayed back for a scrumptious laddu and chai prasad.
