The Many Colours of Hinduism: Bath announces plans for National Inter Faith Week 2019
Tuesday 12 November 19.30 – 21.30
The Weston Hub, Penn Hill Road, Bath BA1 4EH
A special event is being held in the city of Bath on Tuesday 12th November to celebrate national Inter Faith Week.
Hosted by Bath Interfaith Group, which next year celebrates its 30th anniversary, the event will explore the diversity of the Hindu tradition.
Hinduism, thought to be the oldest religion in the world, is full of diversity and colour.
Jane O’Hara, Secretary of Bath Interfaith Group, said:
“As part of the Diwali season, we wanted to do something that not only celebrated the occasion, but would give people living locally the opportunity to find out more about the richness and depth of Hinduism.”
Five speakers from a range of Hindu traditions have been invited to take part in a panel discussion, followed by a Q&A session.
The speakers are:
- Ashish Rajhansa (Bath Hindu CIC)
- Charlotta Chandrika Martinus (Universal Yoga)
- Owen Hanner (Mohanji Foundation)
- Nathan Hartley (ISKCON)
- Cllr Yukteshwar Kumar (B&NES; Council)
The first national Inter Faith Week was held in 2009 at the suggestion of the Inter Faith Network for the UK's Trustees, in response to a report from the (then) Department for Communities and Local Government, which suggested that more needed to be done to bring about cohesion and unity among diverse communities.
Over the last decade, communities across the country have been hosting and coordinating events that celebrate diversity, and encourage people from various religious backgrounds (and none) to come together to learn from one another.
“Our interfaith event in Bath is a chance for us to learn, understand and celebrate diversity together with others,” added Jane.
‘The Many Colours of Hinduism: A Panel Discussion’ will take place on Tuesday 12th November, 7.30pm at The Weston Hub, Penn Hill Road, Bath (BA1 4EH).
