Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, talked about origins, scriptures, six schools of philosophy, gods and goddesses, beliefs,
practice/rituals, festivals, concepts and symbols, etc., of Hinduism to four classes of students and answered questions.
Jim Toner, President; Tim Jaureguito, Principal; and Janine Kearney, theology teacher; of the school welcomed Rajan Zed.
Commending BMCHS for this interfaith gesture, Zed says that a broader and more inclusive understanding of religion is required as religion is a complex and powerful component of our lives. World needs to take the religion more seriously, he adds.
