A talk by Tom Wilson of the St Philip’s Centre and Dr Rembert Lutjeharms of the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies 

Devotional reading is an important part of how many Hindus and Christians live out their faith on a day-to-day basis. But what can we learn from reading each other’s sacred texts? In this interactive and engaging session, Shaunaka Rishi Das of the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies and Tom Wilson from the St Philip’s Centre will read texts from the Bhagavad Gita and the New Testament together, and discuss what they’re learning. There will be an opportunity for questions and discussion as we invite the audience to engage in this process of scripture reading together.
