SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ — During the Sept. 26 meeting, the Council adopted a resolution declaring the month of October as Hindu Heritage Month.
Through the resolution, the township aims to acknowledge the contributions made by residents of Hindu heritage and increase awareness, understanding, and appreciation of the Hindu-American community in South Brunswick.
Hindu heritage spreads a message of Vasudhaiva “Kutumbakam,” which means “The World is one family.” The emphasis of the message is on the interconnectedness and unity of all people and nations, promoting a sense of global harmony, cooperation, and shared responsibility for the well-being of the planet and its inhabitants.
“Hinduism demonstrates through a living enlightened civilization that global peace is achievable and sustainable, and this begins with individual peace and spiritual awakening,” according to the resolution.
“The Hindu community of the Township of South Brunswick comes together to honor their shared heritage and spiritual traditions, and we recognize the many contributions the community has made to our beloved State of New Jersey.”
