Friends Event: Is Hinduism a religion?

Leicester Friends Event
Saturday, 2 May 2015 – 6:30pm to 9:00pm

Belgrave Neighbourhood Centre 

Rothley Street, Leicester LE4 6LF

A talk by Brainerd Prince of the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies

Is Hinduism is a religion? The simple answer is yes – and no. It depends on how we understand the word ‘religion’. We will look at the discussion on what religion is and what constitues a religion and try to understand how useful the very term ‘religion’ is in representing the life of most people of South Asian origin. Is Hinduism a religion as we understand the term or is it a diverse collection of traditions that reveal alternative ways of life?
