The Hindu Chaplaincy, led by the Hindu Chaplain, works closely with alumni, faculty, staff, and students to support the Hindu community at Emory through a progressive and pluralistic approach.

The Hindu Chaplain provides outreach and helps to organize the Hindu community, develops leadership groups, and collaboratively plans, develops, and implements high-quality spiritual life programs including weekly gatherings, holiday observances, retreats, service and social justice projects, and fellowship events.

The Hindu Chaplain is also available for pastoral care and leadership in invocations, memorial services, vigils, and other rituals as needed. The Hindu Chaplaincy works closely with other OSRL chaplains, staff, and students on interfaith initiatives and connects the campus with local, regional, and national opportunities and resources.
