H.R. No. 89
         WHEREAS, The observance of Hindu Heritage Month in October
  2021 provides an opportunity to celebrate the enduring legacy of
  one of the world's oldest religious traditions and the many ways
  that its practitioners have enriched our society; and
         WHEREAS, Nearly one billion people worldwide, including
  around 80 percent of the population of India, belong to the Hindu
  faith; Hinduism refers to a diverse set of beliefs, practices, and
  rituals that date back thousands of years and that vary across
  social groups and regions; the multifaceted, ever-evolving nature
  of Hinduism distinguishes it from belief systems that derive their
  doctrine from a single text, and its complexity leads many to
  embrace it not simply as a religion but as a way of life; and
         WHEREAS, People of Hindu faith make up one of the
  fastest-growing immigrant communities in the United States; they
  have made invaluable contributions as business leaders,
  professionals, and innovators, advancing human knowledge in every
  area from science, astronomy, and medicine to art and literature,
  while also sharing the vibrancy of their culture with the Western
  world; Hindu Americans, including those of Indian descent, have
  added immeasurably to their communities through their unique
  culinary traditions, music, styles of dress, and festivals such as
  Holi and Diwali, and they have further introduced fellow citizens
  to the benefits of yoga, meditation, mindfulness, and other
  spiritual practices; and
         WHEREAS, The Lone Star State is fortunate to be home to a
  diverse and thriving population of Hindus who are working to build a
  brighter future for their families and communities, and it is
  indeed a pleasure to join in commemorating their achievements on
  the occasion of Hindu Heritage Month; now, therefore, be it
         RESOLVED, That the House of Representatives of the 87th Texas
  Legislature, 3rd Called Session, hereby recognize October 2021 as
  Hindu Heritage Month and pay tribute to the meaningful
  contributions that Hindus have made to our state and nation.
  Speaker of the House     
         I certify that H.R. No. 89 was adopted by the House on October
  14, 2021, by a non-record vote.
  Chief Clerk of the House
