Full Version

Rahil joined the OCCA The Oxford Centre for Christian Apologetics as a Speaker and Tutor in 2022. Rahil’s work seeks to train and equip Christ followers to respond to difficult questions posed by the eastern worldviews, particularly Hinduism.

Born in Kenya, but raised in England, Rahil was then trained as a Hindu monk in India. Rahil was a monk for 20 years with one of the world’s most influential Hindu traditions and supervised teaching and temple building across Europe and Russia. Rahil’s development as a monk involved dhyaan, bhakti, the intense reading of Hindu scriptures, and even a two-thousand-mile pilgrimage across India. Here, he listened intently to intellectuals rooted in Eastern spirituality and gained a deep understanding of their perspectives. As a result, today, he offers a unique insight into the sensitivity in which westerners should use to approach eastern spirituality when sharing the Gospels.

Rahil’s unexpected and yet life-changing encounter with Jesus Christ transformed his understanding of religion. As a monk, religion was characterised by works and good karma in an attempt to please god. But as a follower of Jesus, Rahil has found that while religion still holds rituals and commandments, it is at its core most importantly a relationship.
