Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh

Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh (HSS)  is a voluntary, non-profit, social and cultural organization. Sangh, as the organization is popularly known, aims to organize the Hindu community in order to preserve, practice and promote Hindu ideals and values. HSS conducts structured programs of regular athletic and academic activities to develop strong character and leadership skills in its members (known as swayamsevaks for men and sevikas for women), emphasizing values such as self-discipline, self-confidence and a spirit of selfless service (seva) for humanity. We encourage and emphasize  maintaining Hindu cultural identity in harmony with the larger community.

Sangh is inspired by the idea that the whole world is one family and conducts activities worldwide in order to spread this message widely. Sangh in Canada started in 1992 and today has over 28 weekly meeting centers (shakhas) across the country.

It includes games to increase integrity, songs to build unity and team spirit, intellectual sessions called ‘baudhik’, physical and mental games called ‘khels’, yoga and surya namaskar or sun salutation.
