Whether you are culturally Hindu and looking to reconnect deeply with your roots or you are culturally non-Hindu but interested in engaging deeply with the knowledge systems and traditions of Vedic and Indic origin, the Hindu University has something unique to offer you

It was indeed a splendid idea several years ago to launch the Hindu University. The
the idea is as powerful today as it was then, and perhaps even more so as the current marketplace
of ideas demonstrates a growing desire to learn more about the values enshrined in Hinduism
through its practices, such as meditation, yoga, pranayama, and Ayurveda.

As Hindu University’s mission statement reveals, it represents a historic opportunity
to reconsider the role and value of the humanities. I am hopeful that in the years to come the
Hindu University will make a major contribution not only to Hindu studies and
Hinduism but also to American academia itself by living up to the standards of critical inquiry
and open debate.

The Hindu University holds enormous promise for the future of humanity by marshaling
Vedic wisdom towards addressing multiple crises confronting the world today. It can emerge as
an intellectual beacon for understanding the problems plaguing our society and exploring
solutions in the light of that ancient Vedic wisdom.

“Traveling through the “spiritual India” is like enjoying the care of a nurturing grandmother; she is ever-present to transfer the profundity of her ancestral knowledge. In Bharat, every aspect of daily life carries a significance, and the individual realizes that everything is part of universal synchronicity. What is particularly exciting about this program is that we will explore and experience the deep harmony that comes from living by such principles. Physically being in India, with guidance that caters to your growth, creates an environment where is impossible to be untouched.”

” This was a great course, well organized, engaging, and to-the-point. I found the Zoom based virtual classrooms to be a very effective platform for teaching a class. The participants were eager and curious and contributed immensely to the quality of the class. The rotation of teachers from various departments was awesome. I am grateful I attended this class. I am hoping I get more time in the near future to attend more courses and continue my learning. “

“Apart from explaining some hard to understand topics in a very interesting way and being able to listen to lectures from the very knowledgeable professors, it has been very convenient to learn so much without leaving home. I feel that every Hindu must take full advantage of these wonderful study programs offered by HUA.”

“ The Orientation to Hindu Studies Course” offered by the Hindu University, had a great mix of both simple and complex concepts of Hinduism, explained by erudite Professors. This not only gave me clarity about a plethora of topics like Sanskrit Studies, Post-colonialism, Orientalism, Indology, etc, but also generated enough curiosity in me about the courses HUA had to offer. I was inspired to immediately join their MA-PhD in Hindu Studies Program. And I’m glad that I did.

“As a Hindu, I feel what the Hindu University is doing is invaluable to Hinduism generally and to India. HUA provides the background as well as the foundation of what Hinduism is. Most Hindus, wherever they are, would find the courses offered to be of immense value, richness, and personal satisfaction.”
