Hinduism 2 Go

In 2009, HAF created Hinduism 2 Go cards.  These pocket sized cards hold the very basics of Hinduism, as seen below.  The Hinduism 2 Go cards have been a hit at interfaith gatherings as well as with academics and journalists.  If you are interested in placing an order, please email HAF at office@hafsite.org.  To download a pdf of the card, please click here.
