I am a member of the Edinburgh University Vedic Society. I was one of the founding members of this student society. Our objectives are to conduct events that will help students from both Hindu and non-Hindu background to better understand the Vedic religions of India. We also strive to provide a platform for practising Hindu students from India to experience/practice their culture by celebrating all kinds of Vedic festivals. more
