Overview:

Senate Majority Leader Harry M. Reid (D-NV) invited Chaplain Rajan Zed to deliver the the morning prayer for 2007-JUL-12 in the Senate chamber. This is the first prayer ever delivered to the Senate by a Hindu since the founding of the Senate in 1789. Previous prayers had been delivered by Christians, Jews and Muslims, and perhaps others. Zed is the director of interfaith relations at the Hindu Association of Northern Nevada in Reno, NV. He is believed to have been the first Hindu to deliver opening prayers in any state legislature when he opened sessions of the Nevada State Assembly and Senate earlier in 2007.

As commentator Eric Kleefeld noted:

"Today was a historic first for religion in America's civic life: For the very first time, a Hindu delivered the morning invocation in the Senate chamber only to find the ceremony disrupted by three Christian right activists." 4
