Uni Glos RE PGCE students meet spiritual teacher
18th September 2019
University of Gloucestershire students who have just embarked upon the Religious Education PGCE course met with Tarakanath Das, a senior spiritual teacher from the International Society for Krishna Consciousness. This was a fantastic opportunity for our trainee teachers to get a real insight in to this kind of Hinduism and the discussions and Q and A provided plenty of great material for use in the classroom….
Here are some comments: ‘The ideas we discussed were relevant to people of all faiths…that “Human connectedness” can lead to a better world.’
‘Made me aware of the courage some people have when it comes to exploring faiths beyond their own cultural boundaries’
‘This was a real opportunity to learn about other peoples approaches to finding happiness in life’
Many thanks to Tarakanath das, Hare Krishna.
