Amrit Vachan

"Here(in Bharat) activity prevailed when even Greece did not exist, when Rome was not thought of, when the fathers of modern Europeans lived in the forests and painted themselves blue. Even earlier when the history has no record, and tradition dares not peer into the gloom of that intense past, even from then until now, ideas after ideas marched out from her, but every word has been spoken with a blessing behind it and peace before it." -- Swami Vivekananda

HSS calls upon CNN to be sensitive to the Hindus in America
Press Release
March 12, 2017

For Immediate Press Release

HSS calls upon CNN to be sensitive to the Hindus in America

Hindu Americans are deeply concerned with CNN’s misrepresentation of the Hindu religion and cultural traditions in the show, “Believer.”  By focusing on a tiny, obscure and fringe sect, the show further increases the already prevalent misunderstanding about Hindus at a time when the country is going through a period of concern and fear.  The grotesque practices portrayed in the show give a totally misleading impression of a faith of 1.25 billion Hindus with a civilization that spans thousands of years.
 
Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh calls upon CNN to be sensitive to the more than 3 million Hindus living and working in the United States who belong to a tradition with major tenets including peace and nonviolence and who cherish living in harmony with their neighbors.
 
While Americans are struggling to understand their neighbors and different faiths that have enriched the American society, CNN should be part of the effort to bring us together rather than pushing us apart by sensationalized journalism.


 
HSS celebrates Guru Vandana across the United States!
Latest News

Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh has been displaying this appreciation for our teachers here in the United States through the Guru Vandana program, an annual event which offers Hindu students an opportunity to honor and recognize their teachers and their role in shaping who they have become. These programs consist of inviting educators to our shakhas and honoring them in our Hindu tradition. Educators are treated to cultural performances, traditional food, and mementos among other things which differ from shakha to shakha. Teachers from the elementary to high school levels, principals, and even district superintendents have all participated in these activities with very positive feedback. Perhaps the most instrumental external influence on the dreams, aspirations, and character of a boy or girl comes from that of a teacher. Teachers spend more time with children than even their parents, and undoubtedtly impact their upbringing to a level which is felt even after they have left the stages of student hood. In our Hindu culture, this amount of responsibility of the shaping of young minds we have bestowed upon our teachers, or gurus, is greatly revered and respected.

International Yoga Day
Press Release
भारतीय नववर्ष 2072, युगाब्द 5117
Dear Swayamsevak Bandhu and Swayamsevika Bhaginee,

I wish you, your family and friends a happy, healthy and prosperous Varsha Pratipada, beginning of Hindu New Year.

I hope this email finds you in the best of health and good spirits. With this email, I would like to bring to your attention nationwide events on the occasion of International Day of Yoga on June 21, 2015.

In his maiden speech at the United Nations General Assembly on September 27, 2014, Indian Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi urged the world community to adopt an International Yoga Day. Appreciating the holistic approach that Yoga brings to health and well-being, 170 Member States of the UN supported this concept and proclaimed June 21 as International Day of Yoga.

As a Sangh Swayamsevak / Swayamsevika we develop shakhas and serve the community, and in the process we give our best to society without expecting material returns. By offering sewa, we help the needy in society and by developing Surya Namaskar Yajna we offer simple techniques to balance the body, mind and soul for the entire society. By our selfless actions we try to attain what Shri Krishna meant by “yogah karmasu kaushalam.”

International Yoga Day is bringing us a similar opportunity where we can give back to our karmabhoomi the best part of our collective inheritance -- Yoga. As you know, Yoga is not a mere tool for physical fitness but more importantly is a spiritual beacon for an individual’s upliftment. It is in this spirit that HSS is organizing Yoga events at various locations nationwide to promote Yoga and its many benefits. These events will involve all regardless of their race, faith, gender, nationality or any other similar barrier.

I encourage you and your families to not only participate in your local event but also to invite your colleagues, friends and local organizations. The success of this unique opportunity depends on your active participation and involvement of other organizations and their members.

With warm regards,

Ved Nanda
Sanghchalak, USA
