Friends event: Doing the right thing as a Hindu
Belgrave Community Centre,
A talk by Prof. Werner Menski
The challenge to figure out what is the right thing to do in any particular life situation is a universal problem. Hindus have addressed this over time in various ways that can be focused, also today, on the key concept of dharma. The presentation identifies the many different aspects of dharma and provides practical examples of how to handle this decision-making process in a balanced manner. This balance, ideally, should take account of individual needs, social expectations, legal requirements, and also today’s new concerns about human rights and international law.
