Digital Stories from the Hindu Temple of Iowa and Drake Hindu Students

Five Hindu young adults created digital stories in Professor Knepper’s Fall 2013 Religions of Des Moines: Hinduism course. The first two are by members of the Hindu Temple and Cultural Center of Iowa; the next three, by Hindu and Jain Drake students. Above all, these stories convey some of the distinctive practices and principles of Hinduism (and Jainism), and the disciplined resolve to maintain them so far from mother India.
