Belief in India

India’s beliefs as expressed in devotion, daily life and politics

Join IndoGenius as we engage with the many belief systems of India at domestic and community places and spaces of meditation, devotion and worship while meeting with religious leaders, believers, non-believers, interfaith organizers and students of religious studies and sociology to discuss the importance of belief and identify and ways in which belief-based practices, customs, principles and rituals influence religious institutions, politics, education, community, and family. Ultimately consider ways in which sociological perspectives on belief can help to initiate and sustain productive and peaceful dialogues leading to more inclusive societies. Also, enjoy a range of cultural outings, performances and events that help contextualize your program learning.
