Looking for a Hindu...

I am opening a new forum in one of my groups. In this forum we are going to choose one religion a month to discuss. These discussions will be for educational purposes and will be simple Q&A, myths vs reality and "What Is" posts to help people outside these faiths understand the beliefs, practices and people on these paths.

I would like to have at least one member of each chosen faith represented at the time when their faith is chosen. This way they can answer questions or give explanations from the point of view of a believer.

Featured Religions are chosen by vote and we have gotten a request for Hinduism. However I do not have any Hindu mama's in the group. I'm wondering if there are any even on the site - I'm sure there are.

So, to make this a question ~ Are there any Hindu Mama's on here??

  • The name of the Group is End Religious Intolerance and Ignorance... We would be more than happy to have either of you. This is a new feature, and we will be posting our first "Religion of the Month" for February. We also do not have an area for Shinto, so your expertise would be more than welcomed LynnB1!

  • I know there are a few Hindu moms on the site. I used to be in a Hindu Moms group but they may not come to this particular section.

    I learned a bit from them and from my readings as its part of my spirituality. The group was closed due to inactivity but I do know they are around.

  • My ILs are Hindu, and I practice Buddhism which originated out of Hinduism, but I doubt I know enough to comprehensively answer questions, and it would still be an 'outsider' perspective.

    I'm a member of your group though, if you want a Buddhist mom I'd be glad to participate!
