Indian Culture in Focus three Saturdays in March

Shilpa is a Sociologist from India, teaches at the University of Iceland and has been appointed as the Chair of Indian Studies at the University of Iceland, by ICCR - the Indian Council for Cultural Relations.

Shilpa will give lectures at Reykjavik City Library Grófin, three Saturdays in March, on the concept of Yog, the indian philosophy behind AUM, the ancient healing system Ayurveda and Indian cuisine. India for her is not just geography but a string of spiritual, cultural, social, and philosophical beads that has enabled the country to sustain itself as one of the most ancient living civilizations. To share important aspects from the ancient wisdom and the diversely colorful culture of the country, she has set her journey as a carrier of Indian fragrance across the globe.

    India in Focus II | The Indian philosophy behind AUM and the power of chanting
