Hinduism - according to many historical sources - is considered the world's oldest religion and is currently the third most popular religion on the planet. It includes a diversity of ideas on spirituality and traditions but has no ecclesiastical order, no unquestionable religious authorities and no binding holy book. With a seemingly wide range of freedom and the mass appeal of many Hindu practices (yoga, meditation, etc.) it is surprising to find that there are many who choose to leave Hinduism behind.
Today's guest, Greeshma, left Hinduism several years ago when she was still living in India. But why did she choose to leave a religion that seems so open, diverse, and from all outward appearances, free? Join Hayley as she speaks with Greeshma about growing up Hindu, why this and other religions have very little to offer women, and why we must encourage our parents to grow up with us.
