Hindu Teaching at ELCA College
"Forward! Forward! Men of Christ, Men of the Cross"
This is the motto (translated to English) of St. Olaf College, an ELCA school. (read here) You would think with this motto and being a college founded by a group of Norwegian-American immigrant pastors and farmers, that this ELCA Lutheran school would think it is important to have Christian professors teaching there. Or at least in St. Olaf's religion department. I guess not.
Anantanand Rambachan is Chair and Professor of Religion, Philosophy and Asian Studies at St. Olaf College AND is a self proclaimed Hindu. Professor Rambachan biography at St. Olaf's website (read here) tells us he is the author of several books, including The Hindu Vision and Gitamrtam: The Essential Teachings of the Bhagavadgita. (The Bhagavadgita is Hindu scripture taught by Krishna, who is revered by Hindus as a manifestation of God himself.) He is active with the World Council of Churches and their General Assemblies, being a Hindu participant. Professor Rambachan has spoken at the White House during Hindu festivals. And he teaches in Hindu temples around Minneapolis, MN.
