Hindu symbolism workshop

September 30, 2023 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Hindu symbolism workshop

Know the meaning behind Hindu symbols in this short workshop. Why do we celebrate our festivals the way we do? Why are Hindu gods multi-armed, each one specific and distinct from the other? What is the significance of their individual vehicles and the weapons they carry? In the Indian ethos, we encounter symbolism everywhere – in our sastras, in our celebrations and festivals, in the way we live. Symbolism has a language of its own. All are welcome. Free.

The workshop is also part of the Auckland Heritage Festival’s Exploring Sacred Spaces event organised by the Auckland Inter-Faith Council.
