NEW DELHI: The Delhi University started the classes of MA in Hindu Studies today. Du vice-chancellor (VC) Yogesh Singh inaugurated the newly established Centre for Hindu Studies today, following which an orientation programme was held for the first batch students.

The inaugural ceremony was accompanied by a Vedic havan, which was performed with chanting of mantras by the students, following which Prasad Vitran was done for everybody. VC Yogesh Singh said, “The research carried out at the Centre for Hindu Studies should set an example for the rest of the universities of the countries.”

Shri Prakash Singh attended to the students’ concerns in a question and answer session and addressed how this centre is inherently interdisciplinary in nature? Adding to the discussion, Prerna Malhotra talked about the subjects that would be taught at the centre, which are major in hindu studies, with minor in political science, computer science, commerce as well as skill-based subjects like manuscriptology and data analytics in the first semester.

It was also stated during the programme that the focus would be on teaching the essence of Hindu Dharma and Darshan, along with helping them in building a career in other domains of the chosen minor discipline. The objective of an MA in Hindu Studies is to impart training to the students besides making them think critically about the essence of Hindu dharma.
