Namaste.

Hindu thought and traditions have emphasized a balanced approach between external life and internal life, with science and spirituality complementing each other.  Spiritual icons such as Swami Vivekananda, Yogananda, Sri Aurobindo, Swami Tilak and others traveled to the West for sharing Hindu wisdom to provide answers to the problems of the modern world.  Many western philosophers and scholars look to India to find solutions for problems. 

 

HUA offers courses in Hinduism, Yoga, Ayurveda, and Vedic Astrology. You can register early for the next semester or enroll anytime in a degree program.


Classes in Yoga are offered at HUA on Tuesday evenings from 6:00 to 7:30pm. Everyone is welcome!!
 

 

 

HUA BOD MEMBER PRESENTS PAPER

 prasad

Dr. M. G. Prasad is a Board Member of HUA and a Professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Stevens Institute of Technology, Hoboken, NJ.

 

Dr. Prasad says in his paper that "Acoustics has also received a very high importance in Vedas and Vedic literature.  The classical literature of Hinduism or Sanatana Dharma is rooted in Vedas.  It is known that the Vedas are collection of mantras.  In Vedas and Vedic literature several terms such as Nada and Shabda are used.  These terms cannot be translated directly as sound as they refer to vibrations including both physical and spiritual aspects.  However the Nada and Shabda include the human auditory range sound.  In particular human speech, vocal and instrumental music as they lie within the audio range have been discussed significantly in Vedas and Vedic literature.  This paper presents Vedic perspectives on acoustics."
