The musical performance was followed by a short video on HUA’s courses and programs, as well as voices and experiences of students and faculty. Dr. Raj Vedam and Sri Chandra Raghu, both Houston-based faculty members of HUA shared their thoughts as well.
The highlight of the evening was the speech by Sri Ramesh Bhutada where he talked about why he chose to support HUA. He said, “Even though I was born and brought up in a traditional Hindu family, and I had grown up as a Hindu with many prominent Hindu organizations, traditions and groups, I did not really understand the essence of Hindu Dharma. It took 60 years for me to recognize the silver spoon that I was born with i.e., to understand the true essence of Hindu Dharma: it teaches us how to live in harmony within ourselves, with our family, friends and colleagues, and with the entire world. Other universities may impart knowledge for students to earn a livelihood. Only an institution like HUA can impart Hindu knowledge that teaches the student how to live their life!”
