HOUSTON: This February 5- 7, the Hindu Students Association will host its biennial retreat, Gateway, at the URJ Greene Family Camp in Bruceville, Texas!

HSA’s Gateway Retreat is the largest retreat organized by the Hindu Students Association. With a strong focus on personal spiritual growth, the retreat includes religious discourses by knowledgeable Acharyas and Swamis, student-led discussions about hot-topic issues affecting young Hindus, Yoga sessions, cultural dances, and social gatherings which allow participants to bond with young Hindus from other branches.

We are excited to announce the guest speakers for Gateway! Returning from last years Gateway, we welcome back Satguru Bodhinathswami from the Kauaii Adheenam who will discuss various topics of Hinduism, and its applications to daily college life. We are also thrilled to welcome Swami Sarvapriyananda from the Vedanta Society who will be speaking on a topic entitled, “Who am I?” about self discovery and how it relates to Hinduism.

We welcome all who are interested to participate in this spiritual event! Registration and further information can be found at our official Gateway website:
