While this event went largely uncovered by the main stream media it is significant for those who are follows of Vedic Culture regardless of the various faith traditions one may ascribe to. On one hand, one could easily write this off as a pander for votes (this visit was prior to the 2016 election.) While on the other hand, one can see this as an attempt by the Trump teem to reach out and understand the follows of Vedic traditions and knowledge. Until we see otherwise, I believe this should be viewed as a positive event.

I am please to announce the creation of the VCF News & Opinion page. This is a Blog dedicated to providing News & Opinions relative to the advancement of Vedic Cultural integration in the Western World. As His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada stated several times, "India is like a very wise but weak old man and America is like a very strong young man but lacking knowledge. If the Old man can ride on the back of the Young man and give guidance, great things can happen." So we hope to provide some wisdom and insight demonstrating this idea.
At the same time, I hope to dispel and expose ignorance and illusion that may exist. Be it coming from sentimental followers Vedic Philosophy who have a swallow understanding of social political happenings or followers of Western thought who are unaware Vedic truths such as Karma, Reincarnation and Varnashrama Dharma.
