Continuum – The Series

“We often fear what we do not understand. Our best defense… is Knowledge
- Lieutenant Tuvok, Star Trek Series: Voyager

Embracing this aphorism, oPandit ( is arranging a symposium on one of the most intriguing topics in Sanatana Dharma – “Shraaddha”.

Shraaddha, a vidhi that is performed for departed souls, is one of the most misinterpreted and least understood concepts in Sanatana Dharma. There are many contemporary institutions/ NGOs which are strategically opposing Shraaddha vidhi under the pretext of calling it a superstition or un-necessary Karmakand.

Hence, oPandit has decided to take the leap and arrange a symposium on this topic. This symposium is going to be the first event in Continuum – The Series. This series will explore, discuss and disseminate under different themes and concepts, the various components of continuity – one of the basic principles of Sanatana Dharma.
