A Buddhist, Hindu, Christian, Muslim and Atheist discuss meditation & mindfulness

In this interfaith conversation, we discuss the benefits of mindfulness and meditation and how they can be used by people from different religious and non-religious backgrounds.

We talk about:

  • The importance of being focused on the present moment
  • The connection that one can feel with nature, self or God
  • The importance of compassion, selflessness and ethical behaviour
  • Whether meditation can be viewed from both a scientific and spiritual perspective

A big thank you to the participants:

  • Ananya Awasthi presents a perspective from Vedanta in Hinduism
  • William Van Gordon presents a perspective from Buddhism
  • Fiona Igwe presents a perspective from Christianity
  • Adil Saleem presents a perspective from Islam
  • Dominic O'Neill presents a perspective from Atheism/Agnosticism
