Multifaiths ebook will help people to interact with each other in a meaningful way to experience true equality in a civil society. The eBook will broaden the understanding and acceptance of alternate paths of spirituality consistent with what most people presently regard as authentic religious festivals.
Religious movements, sects and even festivals will appear and disappear. Occasionally, one will endure and a significant segment of society will recognise it as a legitimate spiritual path or celebration.

Eventually, the larger society may lend its approval. Of course, contemporary views of what are socially defined as religion, denomination, or sect may also change in the future. In these cases, future editions may well include religions, denominations and sects not presently included.
We aspire that this Multifaiths eBook will broaden the understanding and acceptance of different cultures. The festivals noted in the Multifaiths eBook are annual events that people celebrate once during the course of a solar or lunar year.

Other cycles of time are also important; the new or full moon, a season, a week day (Jewish Shabbat /Jumma’h prayers), or a daily cycle (Eucharist), these cycles are less obvious and they are as important to the faithful as annual festivals.

Encourage through work place to promote, including through education, as well as the development of progressive curriculum and textbooks, understanding, tolerance and friendship among human beings in all their diversity of religion, belief, culture and language, which will address the cultural, social, economic, political and religious sources of intolerance.

Community engagement is critical for all leaders in private and public organisations. They need to go out and understand the cultures of their workers and learn from the timeless wisdoms of different traditions, in order to enrich their personal and organisational leadership.

Too few leaders have the vision or make the time to do this activity, and as a result, we often get the same old ideas, and the same mistakes being repeated. Cultural Competence is critical to creativity.

* A strong emphasis on integrity, values and ethics as a mark of a true professional
* Making values and character a key component of recruitment to the professions
* Professional bodies should actively engage with communities, including disadvantaged groups, not in a patronising way, but in a creative way to enable them to understand how their futures could be improved and providing support and mentoring
* Good practices should be widely propagated - if some ethnic communities have done exceptionally well, this should be studied and the results shared widely.

Govt Policy

Government Policy
In recent years there has been increasing emphasis on the contribution of religious groups to public policy. For a number of political reasons, which are explored more fully in the report, particular policy themes have received more attention than others and include:
• Greater engagement with ‘religion or belief’ stakeholders in the formation of public policy;
• The role of religious organisations in delivery of public services;
• The role of religious groups in building civic society, social capital and community cohesion;

• The role of religion and ‘inter-faith’ activities in preventing violent extremism and radicalisation and in maintaining social order;• The role of religion in education provision.
‘Religion’ and ‘belief’ remain emotive subjects and this can stifle honest and open debate – not least through the misconception that any critical analysis or robust questioning of religious and non-religious beliefs constitutes an attack on those beliefs.

Face to Face, Side by Side: A Framework for Partnership in our multi-faith society Produced in 2008 by CLG, this document builds on other policy documents and consultations already undertaken. In particular, it draws on thinking from the Empowerment White Paper, the Commission on Integration and Cohesion’s final report 94 and research undertaken by the Faith Based Regeneration Network.
The report outlines Government’s planned approach to working with ‘faith communities’ to promote cohesion. The framework is based on 4 ‘building blocks’ which include: i) Confidence and skills to bridge and link
• Skills development to build trust and relationships between people with different religions and beliefs and those with none
• Skills development to build partnerships between faith based organisations and local decision-making bodies
ii) Shared spaces for interaction and social action
• Encouraging sharing of resources between local faith groups
• Creating shared spaces and buildings for faith groups to work together and interact
iii) Structures and processes which support dialogue and social action
• Raising awareness of mechanisms and structures for consulting faith groups (within both Local Authorities and communities)
• Assessing the robustness of these mechanisms, including their representativeness and accessibility
iv) Opportunities for learning
• Role of educational establishments in raising faith awareness and cohesion
• Role of faith organisations in education on these issues
Key Issues
Despite its professed aim to pursue recommendations from ‘Our Shared Future’ regarding improving engagement between those with different ‘religions or beliefs’ (including non-religious beliefs), there is scant reference to non-religious belief groups in the report. Particular concerns were raised about the following:
• Assumptions regarding the inclusiveness of ‘inter-faith’ structures. Much of the framework hinges on the role of ‘inter-faith’ networks, yet the Inter-Faith Network and most of its local affiliates exclude those with non-religious beliefs.

Without a more thorough assessment of the inclusivity of ‘inter-faith’ networks, and without more robust recommendations for improving dialogue between ‘inter-faith’ networks and those with non-religious beliefs, approaches to engagement are likely to exclude those with non-religious beliefs; and so fails to embrace the ‘religion or belief’ strand as a whole.
• Inconsistencies between the proposed focus of Local Authority approaches to engagement of ‘religion or belief’ stakeholders and related equalities legislation and regulations (focusing only on religion not being reflective of the full scope of ‘religion or belief’ equalities law);
• Use of census data to identify the need for increased ‘inter-faith’ work, despite inherent problems with that data.97 The report does acknowledge the variable and often scarce nature of evidence regarding the impact of ‘inter-faith work’,98 yet there is little analysis of the implications of this for the recommendations to increase investment in ‘inter-faith’ work made as part of the framework itself.

It is clear that many local authorities are struggling to implement the Government’s recommendations on this issue and more support and guidance will be required if commissioning agents are to make effective use of these recommendations in the future.
When implementing the recommendations outlined in this paper, local authorities will need support to think through the ‘religion or belief’ equality implications of engagement. They will require support to respond to and balance the needs of a diverse range of interest groups (not only ‘religion or belief’ groups but also other communities of interest). They will also require support to develop robust approaches to commissioning services from ‘faith-based’ organisations. Indeed the LGA survey notes that this is a particular area of training that local authority officers would like to receive

Hindu Festivals

The Hindu calendar is not based on clock time, but on the natural motions of the sun and moon. Therefore it is a reliable predictor of the seasons, weather and many other phenomena. The Hindu Astrological science of Muhurta or the election of auspicious timings for activities is based on the Indian calendar system. Therefore every competent Hindu Chaplin must be familiar with the Hindu Calendar.

 Three types of lunar months are important: the Sidereal month, the Synodic month and the Nodical month. Since the lunar year is eleven days shorter than the solar year, there is a difference of over  a month every three solar years. To compensate for this, roughly once in three years there is  an intercalary  month; during this year, there are thirteen lunar 2012covermonths. 

Reference to "Religious Belief or lack of religious belief" is a broad one. It includes Baha'ism, Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Jainism, Judaism, Sikhism and Zoroastrianism.
