Kamala Devi Harris

Post by DNS » Mon Jan 21, 2019 8:23 pm

Kamala Devi Harris has officially announced her POTUS 2020 run.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kamala_Harris
Her name, Kamala, comes from the Sanskrit word for the lotus flower. Her family lived in Berkeley, California, where both of her parents attended graduate school.[9] She was extremely close to her maternal grandfather, P. V. Gopalan, an Indian diplomat.[5][10] As a child, she frequently visited her extended family in the Besant Nagar neighborhood of Chennai, Tamil Nadu.[11] Harris grew up going to both a black Baptist church and a Hindu temple.[12] She has one younger sister, Maya Harris.[13][14] They both sang in a Baptist choir.[15]
She is Jamaican and Tamil Indian ancestry, raised in Christian and Hindu environments, however, unlike Tulsi Gabbard who is openly Hindu; Harris appears to have embraced Christianity as her religion. Not that religion is the sole criteria, but just found that interesting and that she has Sanskrit first and middle names.

Religion does matter in some ways though for example, it would be nice to see a leader who follows ahimsa rather than apocalyptic views.

This should be moved to News; there is no Hindu Dharma forthcoming from the Senator, I predict.

Okay, moved it. No, not likely to hear any Hindu Dharma teaching from Senator Harris.
