About Us

The Preamble
Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh (UK) – referred to as HSS (UK), was established in 1966 by Hindus (mainly from East Africa) who had immigrated to the UK. HSS (UK) was initially registered as a Charity in 1974 with the following preamble “it is a part of the accepted doctrine of the Hindu religion that its practice develops in its adherents both a love for Bharat (India) as the Holy Land of the Hindus and the spirit of eternal Hinduism. which means love for the whole of humanity regardless of race, country, nationality, religion, sect, faith, or creed and furthermore that this spirit enables such adherents to become better and more useful citizens”.

The Model
The preamble has been the spirit of the HSS (UK) since its inception. The primary aims and objectives of the HSS (UK) activities revolve around Sanskār (spiritual development), Sewā (service to humanity) and Sangathan (coming together)’, thus promotion  Hindu Dharma (Religion), Hindu ideals and Hindu way of life in the British multicultural environment.
