Conference

Global Hindu Conference

Global Hindu Conference addresses issues of concern to the worldwide Hindu community, and brings together scholars, thinkers and activists on one platform.

The participants in the Global Hindu Conference (GHC) can generally be classified into three categories.

  1. Hinduism thinkers, writers and teachers who have been studying some aspect of today’s sociological, socio-political and spiritual issues and problems, and who can thus present their ideas cogently and persuasively, in a dispassionate manner.
  2. Hindu activists and community leaders, who have taken up community and public service work of some kind, that addresses a specific need or problem, and who can present a clear picture of their particular activity, its goals, objectives and accomplishments.
  3. Those who are neither writers/teachers nor activists, but who have an inherent interest in Hinduism topics and have a deep commitment to Hinduism causes, and therefore could potentially participate in teaching Hinduism, or public writing on Hinduism topics, or take up community and public service work.

The intersection between thinkers, writers, teachers, students, activists, community leaders and the laity represents a unique and potent combination that is probably the most important distinguishing characteristic of the GHCs.

The confluence of “Thought” and “Activism” allows for the germination of new ideas, their fructification into real world public activism, and eventually into a measurable impact on the Hindu community at large. The GHC embodies the maxim that “activism without ideas is rootless, and ideas without activism are fruitless”. Thus making it incumbent upon thinkers and activists to come together to understand each other.

Thus the ultimate possibility of the GHC conference is the creation of a new generation of Hindu community leaders, who begin to see themselves as capable of providing leadership in vision, thought and action, while being part of a larger network of Hindu community leaders, all making a positive impact on the Hindu society itself.
