Dr Raj Balkaran
June 26 2020

One of the keys to the success of the OCHS Continuing Education Department has been the people we bring on board. If you take a look at our Course Team page, you’ll see exactly what I mean. We have over a dozen scholars from Oxford and around the world making Hindu Studies accessible.

Today we’re delighted to announce our newest team member, Dr Raj Balkaran. Raj is at the University of Toronto. He’s a teacher of Sanskrit texts and a prolific author.

He also has an amazing Hindu Studies podcast where he interviews authors of new and notable books on Hinduism.

I would particularly recommend his interview with Dr Nick Sutton on Nick’s teaching philosophy.

Raj will start with teaching the Introduction to Hindu Philosophy course in July 2020 and we hope this is the beginning of a long and fruitful partnership.
