I am attending the “2011 Experts Meeting” of the Uberoi Foundation for Religious Studies is being held at Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles, CA (September 30th to October 2nd, 2011.) The theme is In Our Own Voices – Dharma Education in North America: “to facilitate the emergence of innovative / creative theories, approaches, methods to education / scholarship in Hindu, Jain, Buddhist and Sikh Dharma traditions.” You didn’t know that I was an expert, did you? Just kidding. I have been invited only as an observer. So off to LA I go. I am driving down. Back to the SF Bay area on Oct 4th. And then off to India on Oct 11th.
