    First Hindu American Congress Women Takes Oath on Bhagavad Gita

    Tulsi Gabbard from Hawaii has created history by not only becoming the first Hindu ever to be sworn in as a member of the US House of Representatives, but also being the first ever US lawmaker to have taken oath of office on the sacred Bhagavad Gita.

    Tulsi, 31, was administered the oath of office by the John Boehner, Speaker of the House of Representatives.

    "I chose to take the oath of office with my personal copy of the Bhagavad-Gita because its teachings have inspired me to strive to be a servant-leader, dedicating my life in the service of others and to my country," Gabbard said after the swearing in ceremony yesterday.

    Pretty cool. I actually read the Bhagavad Gita as part of a comparative essay against Niccolo Machiavelli's The Prince.

    I read part of it in school as well...don't remember much at this point but read it. Glad to see diversity in government as it is in life.
