Sadhu Bhadreshdas

Sadhu Bhadreshdas Visit to ANU

9th August 2019

The Australian National University (ANU) has been home to two great Western scholars of Sanskrit—AL Basham and JW de Jong. The forthcoming visit of Sadhu Bhadreshdas on 15 August 2019 marks the first time a traditional Indian Sanskrit scholar of such eminence has visited our campus.

Sadhu Bhadreshdas, who holds four Masters degrees, a PhD and a DLitt, is an ordained monk with the BAPS Swaminarayan Research Institute in New Delhi. He is a prolific author and has produced major Sanskrit commentaries on the Bhagavad Gita and other key Hindu texts. He is also widely recognised as an important contemporary interpreter and proponent of Hindu philosophy.

This is a rare opportunity to hear a speaker of such depth, experience and calibre. Sadhu Bhadreshdas' public lecture at ANU will address the eternal question of Brahman, the ultimate nature of reality, surely a subject that involves us all.

The Indian community of Canberra is kindly providing a free vegetarian meal before the event to all those attending, so there will be ample food for the body and the soul on the evening. We look forward to you joining us.
