What you'll do

During next few weeks we shall also be focusing on Festival of Lights (Diwali) and tell you all about it. All Guests will receive a "Diwali Gift" from the Host. This Experience is great for groups, companies & team-building during Diwali Festive Season!

Since ancient times, Indians have worshiped millions of Gods. There is an interesting story behind every Hindu God, each having a unique weapon, festival and a partner animal. We shall be telling you stories, sacrifice, strengths & rituals of various Hindu Gods. Among many other things, you will know about -

1. Interesting facts about Hindu culture, traditions and customs.

2. Various festivals celebrated in India for different Gods.

3. Powerful chants, rhymes & verses from Holy books.

We have a small temple in our home where idols of several Gods are kept. We shall take you virtually inside this Temple where you can see the Gods & various items used for praying with close proximity.

Apart from educating about structure of a Hindu temple, we shall also tell you about famous Temples which you can visit during your trip to India.

We shall also have interactive Quiz during the session and finally, we shall collectively light a lamp and listen to a Hindu prayer.

The 75 minutes session shall be highly interactive where we shall answer all your questions about Hindu Culture

My name is Roopak. I am a Hindu and love to pray. I am living in Delhi for last several years with my family consisting of my wife and two teenage children.

I also run a successful in-person Airbnb Cooking Experience. During this Experience our Guests used to take a house tour and we used to show them the small temple in our home. We felt that our Guests were always very eager to know about Hindu Gods. We wish to bring our Guests around the world close to Hindu Gods through on-line Experience.

We truly believe that an hour of this Experience can educate our Guests about Indian Gods, mythologies behind each God, how Hindus pray to Gods and different festivals related to each God. My wife, Nidhi shall be my co-host during the Experience.

Roopak provided a very educational and enjoyable experience about Hinduism and the holidays celebrated in this sacred philosophy. I felt like I was transported to his home in India for a brief period.

What a wonderful experience for our daughters and me! We felt like we made a new friend and learned so much about a culture and a religion. We loved learning about Hinduism and Indian culture and really loved meeting Roopak and seeing how guests are welcomed as gods in a Hindu home and also seeing his shrine. Our children especially loved the stories and seeing Roopak's family's shrine. We highly recommend this class for individuals or families and also feel that it would be nice for classrooms. Thank you Roopak.

More tips
