Upcoming Events

SANGAM 2014 - National Conference of UK Hindu Temples

With so much happening in the MultiFaith/Interfaith Arena and with Religion Spirituality and Faith becoming a greater part of the UK scene - Hindu's have a huge contribution to make! As representatives of the "Mother of All Religions", the unique custodians of the concept and practice of Adhyatmic Saadhana's, our opportunity and responsibility is greater than all others. As the only Religion with Ahimsa as its cornerstone and with a history of adhering to Ahimsa, Hindus occupy a place of great importance and our voice can make a different.

 

This conference will give all Hindu Temples an opportunity to congregate and contribute their experiences, their received wisdoms and to unite with a singular voice. Workshops, Keynote Speakers, Spiritual Leaders, the movers and shakers in the UK Hindu scene will be helping us to nurture and shape the Hindu contribution to the UK.  If you are interested, please contact us and lets make this an extraordinary event. If we dont define our own contribution it will be defined for us. Click here to get in touch.
