Nehru Centre talk: Kitchen Religion: Hindu Approaches to Food
8 South Audley Street
London, W1K 1HF
A talk by Anuradha Dooney of the Oxford Centre for Hindu Studies
From the earliest expressions of Hindu thought to Ayurvedic remedies, tiffin wallas, and temples of today, food, fasting and feasting have been at the heart of Hindu ideology and practice. This talk savours some of the ‘thinking behind the eating’ from the Upanishads, the Mahabharata and the Bhagavad Gita amongst others.
