Friends of HUA Gala in Bay Area on April 22nd, 2023


Friends of Hindu University of America - Bay Area hosted a HUA Awareness Gala on Saturday, April 22nd, 2023 at Falcon X Hall in Milpitas. Nearly 200 members of the Bay Area community attended the engaging and informative event

The gala featured a keynote address from Swami Paramatmananda Saraswati (visiting from Rajkot, India) who declared that "Hinduism is a vision of the truth" and made the case why HUA is an institution of great importance to the Hindu community at large. The Bay Area community also heard a distinguished panel discussion on the need for a University that strives to provide top notch academic experience with a Hindu Dharma perspective. The event concluded with a keynote address from HUA President Sri Kalyan Viswanathan about HUA, its current state of strong rejuvenation and a roadmap outlining vision for the University's continued growth and development. Smt. Annapoorna Malyala, HUA student and Sri. Ankur Patel, Director of HUA Advancement, emceed the program.

Sri Kalyan Viswanathan, President of HUA said, “Following a successful Gala event in Houston in March, I am pleased to see a strong level of interest in and engagement with HUA in the Bay Area. The need for an academic institution that provides a platform for a distinctively Hindu Dharma oriented immersion in study leading to an effective engagement with the broader academia on equal footing has never been greater. With the blessing of our Acharyas from varied lineages and sampradayas and supported by a growing body of practicing Hindus committed to learning and teaching, HUA seeks to become the premier University for the benefit of current and future generations of Sanatanis.” 

The event was hosted at Falcon X Hall, organized by the local Friends of HUA - Bay Area chapter, with excellent volunteer support from the local community.
