Ted Ulrich received his bachelor’s degree from the University of Minnesota in chemistry, his master’s from St. John’s University in theology, and his doctorate from The Catholic University of America in comparative religion. He teaches courses in world religions, Hinduism and Buddhism, and Christian theology. In addition, he has led numerous study abroad trips. Four of them were to India. These involved homestays in villages and focused on the Hindu, Muslim, and Syriac Christian religions. His writing and research has focused on interreligious dialogue in general and Swami Abhishiktananda in particular. Abhishiktananda (Henri Le Saux) was a Catholic priest and Benedictine monk who, while retaining his identity as a priest and monk, became involved in Hindu monasticism. 

More recently, Ulrich spent the 2017-2018 academic year in India on a Fulbright Fellowship. His project was comparing and contrasting the development of the respective views of Aurobindo Ghose and Mahatma Gandhi on active and passive resistance. Aurobindo was a major leader in the independence struggle who preceded Gandhi’s leadership by about ten years. Unlike Gandhi, he advocated the use of violence in certain circumstances. Later, he became known across the world as a mystic and spiritual master. 

Ulrich has given talks on a variety of topics at Annamalai University, Pondicherry University, Madras University, Madurai Kamaraja University, Jadavpur University, and the University of Mauritius.
