Welcome to the Office of Religious Life
Diwali at the Chapel
On November 6, the Hindu Life Program hosted an evening of devotional music & dance, worship, and spiritual reflection, in celebration of Diwali, Hinduism’s Festival of Lights. This year’s Diwali at the Chapel included offerings from PU Swara, Naacho, and the students and staff of Princeton University. We are so excited to be able to share the full video recording of the evening with the ORL community!
In early 2021 the Office of Religious Life created a memorial to the growing number of people, beloved by Princetonians, who were dying of Covid. This video captures the first stage of that project. May their memory be a blessing.
