Hindu Delivers Prayers in CO State Senate

Ad Feedback

A Hindu has delivered the morning prayer in Colorado's state Senate for the first time in the chamber's history.

Rajan Zed opened the prayer Tuesday by saying "om" and then read Hindu scriptures in Sanskrit.

He then said, "We meditate on the transcendental glory of the deity supreme, who is inside the heart of the earth, inside the life of the sky and inside the soul of heaven. May he stimulate and illuminate our minds."

Zed sprinkled water from India's Ganges River around the podium before the prayer.

Zed made history in the U.S. Senate last July when he delivered the first Hindu prayer there, at the invitation of Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada.
