Introducing Simran and Vraj
Simran, 14, introduces herself and her Hindu religion: she likes music, photography, food and playing with her brother Vraj, who’s 11. He likes Tae Kwon Do. They show us some of their hobbies and interests. They explain their vegetarian way of life and connect it to Hindu beliefs. This belief is all connected up: the one ultimate truth, Brahman is understood in different ways through the many gods and goddesses of Hindu dharma (means ‘way of life’).
In the series ‘My Faith, My Religion’ children from inside each religion give a rounded picture of their young lives, including what it means to them to be part of their faith community in Britain today. This reflects some contemporary understandings of what helps all children in their learning about different religions and beliefs.
