One of the highlights of the event would be a lecture by Dr. Graham Schweig, Christopher Newport University, Virginia, who would speak on the topic: “The Importance of Hindu Theology”. The lecture will deal with the importance of theological orientation in the study of religious scriptures and how an analysis of scriptures using secular orientation alone will not reveal the deeper meanings conveyed by the scriptures. Other speakers in the event include Dr. Riess Potterveld, Dr. Rita Sherma, and Mr. Kalyan Viswanathan.

DCF is a non-profit organization based in the USA that aims to “establish the systematic Academic study of ‘Dharma’, its interpretation and application through the creation of Academic and Intellectual Infrastructure and Institutions.”

According to DCF, those who wish to register for the event, must register at their website.
