The next meeting of BIFG will be at 7.15 p.m. on Wednesday 5th July
at the Bristol Hindu Temple, 163 Church Road, Bristol BS5 9LA.
We shall observe the evening ceremony of Aarti and then be led in discussion about how the Hindu faith
There are, of course, many different ways in which Hindu families practise their faith but in so far
as it is possible to identify a typical Hindu family, Panditji and/or other Hindus will tackle questions √ such as:
What food is eaten?
What drinks are consumed?
What dress is worn?
What criteria would determine choice of employment? What are typical leisure-time activities? Would there be a shrine in the home and what prayer practice is followed? What language(s) would be spoken at home? What would be the attitude to consumption of non-renewable resources, the choice of school for children and the choice of firms for investment?
Do come if you can and ask your questions.
