October Eco Sanga: Animal Ethics with Krishna Kshetra Swami
Friday, October 11th, 7-8:30 PM at The Bhakti Center

Krishna Kshetra Swami, a scholar and author based at the Oxford Center for Hindu Studies, will discuss animal ethics and cow care with us in light of his forthcoming book, “Cow Care in Hindu Animal Ethics,” Palgrave-MacMillan 2019.


The Sacred Ecology Eco-Sangas are monthly gatherings where we discuss current environmental issues through the lenses of the teachings of Bhakti-yoga. We will explore how the practice of Bhakti inherently encourages our environmental consciousness. Discussions will lead to practical engagement, where we look at what we can do to become actively involved in making a greener, more spiritually conscious world.
