A Hindu civilization exhibition called, "Darshana - A Look into the Hindu Culture," was held at the Georgia State Capitol. A total of 25 political officials, including senators and representatives from the state of Georgia, were taught about Hindu culture by high school and college students with the use of posters during the event.

Since the spring of 2022, the Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh USA (HSS) has been organizing the exhibition around the United States as an educational initiative as a part of the Hindu Dharma Awareness Campaign. Darshana aims to create better awareness and understanding of the tenets of Hinduism.

The exhibition provided a forum for the study of several subjects, including yoga, ayurveda, Dharma, mathematics, architecture, the arts, the sciences, and the contemporary global influence of Hinduism. It was visited by a number of Georgian elected authorities, who praised this awareness campaign.

The National Black Caucus of State Legislators' President, Representative William Mitchell of District 88, praised the exhibition's presentation of cultural diversity. The historical and archaeological posters, according to Senator Shawn Still of District 48, were very powerful.

While thanking the elected officials of Georgia State, Dr Ajay Houde, President of HSS for Georgia, said, “The primary objective of this touring exhibition is to educate policymakers, law enforcement officers, and the residents of Georgia about the philosophy, culture, and rich heritage of Hindu-Americans."

"To date, we have presented the exhibition at twelve locations across the state with seventeen Dharmic organizations supporting the outreach initiative. We sincerely appreciate the overwhelming interest and participation of the Georgia State Representatives and Senators," he added.
