Why Do We
September 17 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
In the absence of understanding, all actions are mere labour. In religion and culture, often the doing of the action is emphasized over the understanding of the action. This has lead to the notion of religious acts being ‘blind or empty’… Why Do We tries to gain an insight into some of reasons behind the practices so that we may understand the reasoning behind religious actions, do them and benefit from them.
