Hinduism or the Sanatana Dharma



Well, where does one begin when confronted with as vast a subject as Hinduism. We would recommend beginning with the FAQ on Hinduism, where many questions are answered in an introductory fashion. There is also  listed a list of reference books in the FAQ section for further reading. See also the section on Core Values for the value system which has its roots in Hindu ethics. We intend this section to be a resource material for all Hindus and non-Hindus, but especially for Hindu children growing up in America

Qualified applicants will be age 16 or older and take part in an 8 week internship. Interns will work from home and must have computer and internet access. Austin based interns are invited to work at the Vedic Foundation office.

Mentors will guide the intern’s work throughout the internship. Interns will spend 20 hours per week for 8 weeks on their project assignments.
