Thirty seven students of the graduate program of studies (B.Th) of Vidyajyoti Institute of Religious studies, Delhi attended a week long exercise on eco-theology 18-22 Feb 2013.
Theology in India means an investigation into one’s faith, mimansa broadly, to seek answers to many contemporary questions of our times. Robert Athikal S.J, from Tarumitra animated the workshop.
The broad context of the workshop has been the basic idea that Asians generally are religious in their upbringing and life. Tarumitra’s attempt has been to connect effectively the conservation of the planet to one’s Faith.
Both World Wide Fund (WWF) and United Nations have been attempting to high light the connections between Faith and Conservation in the past. Many have commented positively on their attempt.
