Julia Roberts Goes Hindu

The USA TODAY column Faith & Reason reports today that Julia Roberts and her family are now worshiping and practicing sanAtana dharma, often referred to as Hinduism.

Here is a photograph of Ms. Roberts with her guru Swami Dharam Dev:

vedAnta is currently the main living darsana of a spirituality and religion that stretches back some five thousand years into the mists of time. Although the vedAnta darsana has no founder, since the foundational scripture, the vedA-s, are believed to be of Divine rather than human authorship, it was codified in the seventh century by shrI shaMkarAcArya. The other main Scriptures are the brahmasUtras and the bhagavad gItA.

Notably, there is no creed for conversion in any of these principle Scriptures.
