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.
