Dharma Bee is a nation wide quiz contest for kids with the theme ‘Discover your Hindu Heritage". Dharma Bee’s goals are to improve swadhyaya (learning) about Hindu dharma, increase bala/kishore participation in shakha and to improve quality of shikshaks. As part of HSS’s nationwide initiative, HSS Durga Shakha in Temple City, CA organized “Dharma Bee - 2020” program that began on February 9th, 2020. National team provided basic guidelines and resources such as syllabus, campaign materials, teaching strategies etc.
The event Namaste YUVA 2020 was organized by Hindu YUVA volunteers from Georgia Institute of Technology (GT), Georgia State University (GSU) and, the University of Georgia (UGA) on Saturday, August 8th, 2020. The event’s purpose was to welcome freshmen students to their respective universities who were transitioning from high school to college life. Further, the event helped us in introducing Hindu YUVA, Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh (HSS), and the university shakha to these incoming students.
Hindus have many festivals throughout the year, however, HSS has selected 6 of them as they exemplify the positive values they convey to the community, and are celebrated not by Individuals or families but the entire community comes together to celebrate.
Sangh Shiksha Varg is an elite institution where transformation of ordinary SwayamSevaks into extraordinary torchbearers, of Sanatana Dharma, begins.
Great Lakes HSS division chose not only to plan and execute this Varg for their Swayamsevak(s) and sevika(s), but was entrusted with doing so for Bhuttanese youth. This was the first national Bhutanese Youth Camp. This is a matter of great pride and honor for our division.
