This is a guest blog written by the National Hindu Students' Forum (UK).
16 to 20 November is 2015's Hindu Awareness week.
Multi headed Gods. Dance. Diwali. Food. Colour. Exuberance. These are just a few of the ideas that come to mind when we think of the term ‘Hindu’.
At National Hindu Students' Forum (UK) we wanted to showcase that Hindu Dharma is more than just about having fun, practising rituals and reading scriptures. We wanted to inspire the university community to engage with a profound philosophy that has shaped some of the greatest minds in history from Krishna to Einstein and Buddha to Tesla.
Hinduism has produced countless personalities who, whilst have carried widely plurastic and diverse views, have all stressed the idea of harmony and unity amongst diversity.
Drawing from ancient Indian wisdom, we wanted to engage with critical issues affecting British students and showcase how some of the messages from many millennia ago are as relevant today as they were back then.
Between 16 and 20 November, students from across the country embarked upon this challenge.
If Hindu Awareness Week or Hinduism intrigued you (even just a little bit), be sure to get in touch with your local NHSF (UK) chapter or contact us via our website.
