The GTU’s Mira and Ajay Shingal Center for Dharma Studies (CDS) represents the leading edge in interdisciplinary and interfaith academic programs of the Hindu world. Highlighting theology, ethics, spiritual paths, world engagement, and the in-depth study of ancient, classical, and contemporary Hindu texts, thought, and practice, the CDS offers the vast richness of the Hindu world to scholars and students of these and other traditions.
This Faiths in Conversation series webinar on "Hinduism & Justice" features a conversation between CDS Director Dr. Rita D. Sherma and UT-Austin Associate Professor of Religious Studies Dr. Jonathan Wyn Schofer.
Professor Rita D. Sherma was honored to receive the Hindu Community Foundation's 2021 Award for Service (Karma Yoga Honoree), for development of breakthrough platforms, organizations, programs, and publications for pioneering research in, and academic and public teaching of Dharma Studies.
Please join us for a conversation between Jai Chakrabarti and Dan Schifrin about Chakrabarti's new novel, A Play for the End of the World. This is a joint program between the Center for Jewish Studies and the Center for Dharma Studies.
In the face of the global COVID-19 pandemic and climate calamity, when the linked injustices of economic, social, and environmental inequity are on the rise, what answers can our religious traditions provide? These are the questions we’ll be exploring at Sustainable Societies Conference II.
