Emory University is currently undertaking an exciting project to develop an Emory Interfaith Center 1707 N. Decatur Road.  
This project has been contemplated for many years in order to create a place of worship, prayer, meditation, and retreat on campus for Emory's diverse spiritual communities that will also be a space to foster interfaith engagement, education, dialogue, service, and social justice work. It will be a home away from home for Emory's diverse spiritual communities, as well as a gateway between the campus and the Atlanta community and world beyond.
Interested students, faculty, and staff can participate in two ways:
  1. Survey - Complete a brief survey. The results will be used for internal planning purposes only. Complete the survey at
  2. Listening Session - Join us for an open listening session on Thursday, October 14 from 3:30-4:30 p.m. via Zoom to share your thoughts in conversation. Register at

Puja Garba
Hindu Students Association Puja and Garba
Friday, October 15, 5:00 p.m., Cannon Chapel 
Friday, October 15, 7:00 p.m., Emory Student Center
Celebrate the last night of Navaratri in Cannon Chapel at 5:00 p.m., followed with Garba at 7:00 p.m. Navaratri is a 9-night/10-day celebration of the feminine. Navaratri is a celebration of this intrinsic feminine power. For some, it marks the start of the harvest and as such mother earth is venerated.
For others each night of Navaratri is representative of one of the 9 incarnations of the Goddess Durga, who is celebrated for her fearlessness and victory over negativity. Based on region, some celebrate with an elaborate worship of the Goddess Durga while others celebrate through fasting and participating in Garba dance. The circular formation of the Garba dance, which is typically performed around a clay pot with a lit oil lamp inside, represents the centrality of the divine feminine, or life force for some. 
Join us for puja, food, and dance this year as we celebrate Navaratri. All are welcome. Garba will include a free dinner, a SaRaas Performance, Bollywood Music, and more. RSVP is not necessary for Puja, but sign up for Garba here
