Friends Event: The Cook, the Thief, the Wife and the Lover: Images of Time in Hindu tradition
Belgrave Neighbourhood Centre
Rothley Street Leicester LE4 6LF
A talk by Anuradha Dooney of the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies.
We all know the clock-face of time that marks our days in ticks and tocks, but who knows the face of Time presented as these characters above?
This talk draws upon some less familiar faces of Time from the Mahabharata, the Puranas and the Bhagavad Gita and explores the relevance of these positive and negative descriptions to our experience of time today. It is accompanied by a visual presentation and will allow time questions and further discussion
