About Us

Welcome To
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 (sewa) for humanity. We encourage maintaining Hindu cultural identity in harmony with the larger community. HSS is inspired by the idea that the whole world is one family and conducts activities across Norway in order to spread this message widely.

Shakha in the Modern World

Shakha literally means “branch” in Sanskrit and it’s role has come a long way from its birth in India in 1925 to its firm establishment throughout the globe today – Australia, UK, USA, Europe, Middle East, India, etc. People from all walks of life and diverse backgrounds attend these weekly ‘Shakhas.’
This structure has never had as important a role in our society as today.

The question arises, what are the benefits of Shakha in the modern world; just to mention a few :-

  • Gaining and developing transferable skills for professional and personal lives: discipline, team working skills, punctuality, public speaking, leadership qualities, assertiveness, social networking and confidence to deal with high pressure and real life situations.
  • A forum for children and youth, where challenges of living in the modern world and maintaining our culture can be discussed.
  • Making well rounded individuals to become society leaders: training through intellectual, mental, physical and spiritual activities.
  • Having fun: Playing Indian and other games and sports.
  • Having a social gathering of people with similar cultural background and values; most importantly, people of all ages having fun and coming together for a common cause.
  • Developing unity irrespective of the social, language and regional background and teaching equality of human beings implementing ‘Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam.’
  • Learning the practical and spiritual benefits of Sewa (selfless service): becoming a trueSwayamsevak (volunteer).
  • Being part of a global community: interaction with people from other Western societies (UK, USA, Europe) & India.
