‘My dear sisters and brothers of America’ were the famous words that introduced Hindu Dharma to the West by Swami Vivekananda. In celebration of Swami Vivekananda’s 150th birth anniversary, Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh USA Inc. (HSS) is taking initiative to organize day long Dharma & Yoga Fest throughout America during the months of August, September and October.
Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh USA concluded its yearlong festivities to celebrate Swami Vivekananda's 150th birth anniversary. 55000 participants participated in over 400 various events in 37 states.
MARCH 14, 2016 — The fifth biennial youth camp of Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh (HSS), held in Austin, TX from March 12 to March 14, brought together 110 university students and young professionals from across the country. HSS organized this camp to provide a forum for young leaders to share their experiences, exchange ideas, and gain a deeper understanding of Hindu culture, while addressing societal problems faced around the world.
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.
