Usha Raj loves calling North Carolina “Home”. She treasures her friends and social connections from artists to intellectuals from many diverse backgrounds. Encouraged by their support and interests and her former responsibilities as Hindu Chaplin at the Duke University, she continues to dialog with interfaith communities across North Carolina.  Her enthusiasm to share, educate, learn and collaborate with other faith leaders has created many speaking opportunities on the subject.

Usha concurs,

“We love what we know

We know what we understand

We understand what we are taught”

She believes fear comes from the unknown. Reaching out, sharing who we are and being open and honoring others creates a path for us to walk together and live in peace and harmony.
