A taste of the Comparative Religion and Culture Program students’ recent experiences in India:
1. (From top to bottom) CRC students in Kerala, India, got to witness an ancient Hindu Vedic ritual at the house of a Namboothris Brahman family. The ritual was worshipping a Hindu goddess, and included dance, drumming, and a water offering.
2. Students got to visit the Taj Mahal during their week stay in Delhi. It was a great day and students were fascinated to see how much effort and precision was put into architecture for a Mausoleum.
3. Up in Varanasi, students are studying Hinduism in what is considered one of the most holy, religious cities in the world. Here is a typical Hindu shrine in a temple, one of several that students have been lucky enough to visit since arriving in India.
