Lecture by Shaunaka Rishi Das, Director of The Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies
Response by The Venerable Richard Atkinson, Archdeacon of Leicester
In this talk Shaunaka Rishi Das will outline some of the issues facing engaged Hindus and Christians as they develop their relationships. He will ask who writes the rules of dialogue and suggest ways of approaching relationships which may build good foundations for understanding, and a more profound practice of respect. Shaunaka will also address a number of key ideas where Hindus and Christians have struggled to gain a meeting of minds, and of hearts.
