Vedic Recitations in a Christian Church on Thanksgiving
Recitations from ancient Sanskrit scriptures will reverberate in a Christian church in Nevada on the occasion of coming Thanksgiving eve service.
Rajan Zed, the prominent Hindu chaplain, will read from Rig-Veda (oldest existing scripture of the world dated from around 1,500 BCE), Upanishads (Hindu scriptures containing mystical teachings), and Bhagavad-Gita (famous philosophical and spiritual poem) in Trinity Episcopal Church in Reno (Nevada) during Twenty-second Annual Thanksgiving Service of Northwestern Nevada to be held on November 21 evening.
Despite conflicts around the world, various faith traditions in northwestern Nevada will come together to share the spirit of love on Thanksgiving, Zed says. Shanti-Shanti, the only Sanskrit rock band of the world, will perform on the occasion. Choirs from area Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and Trinity Episcopal Church will also sing. A procession of the clergy dressed in an array of religious garb will be held before the Service.
All people have more in common than they have in conflict and challenge today is to seek unity that celebrates diversity, Zed adds.
