Leicester LE3 0LF
A talk by Shaunaka Rishi Das of the Oxford Centre For Hindu Studies
In recent years a new brand of evangelical atheism has emerged in Britian, and its High Priests are articulate, literate, and media savy. Coupled with what many religious people see as an increase in the exclusion of religion from public sight and discourse, traditional religion in the UK feels under attack. Where do Hindus stand in this national debate? Although we don't hear much from the Hindu community in the UK we can explore the ideas of theism and atheism, and the rational behind them as discussed by Krishna and Arjuna.
