The 7th Annual Hindu baccalaureate service and dinner at the University of Nevada–Reno Joe Crowley Student Union was held on Sunday evening, April 27, 2014. At this event various  leaders of the local interfaith community gathered to bless the graduating class. The event was organized by the Indian Student Organization in collaboration with Rajan Zed to bless the graduating class in traditional Hindu style according to Vedic scripture. A dinner buffet was prepared with an Indian theme.

Head Bishop Gene Savoy Jr. attended the service, accompanied by his daughter Sonya, and delivered the following blessing:

May the God of salvation bless you with every good
And keep you from all evil,
And enlighten your spirit with the wisdom of life,
And grant you eternal knowledge,
And turn His face of mercies towards you for eternal peace.
May you walk in the spirit of God,
Consisting of healing and abundance of bliss
With length of days and fruitfulness;
And all blessings upon you without end
And eternal joy in perpetual life,
And a glorious crown and garment of honor
In everlasting Light.
Amen
