Friends event: Exploring Diwali

Leicester Friends Event
Saturday, 7 October 2017 – 6:30pm to 9:00pm

Belgrave Neighbourhood Centre
Rothley Street, Leicester LE4 6LF

A talk by Shaunaka Rishi Das and Dr Nick Sutton of the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies

As we prepare for the celebration of Diwali, sending messages, planning meals, buying jewellery, hoping for jewellery – and all the arrangements that have to be made for friends and family – it will be equally good to prepare our thoughts. What is Diwali about? What are the stories of Diwali, from Gujarat, to Chennai? And why is it such a popular festival, even among non-Hindus? This evening we will prepare our minds for Diwali. Bring your story and bring a friend.
