INTRODUCTION

Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh(HSS)

ImageThe uniqueness of Hindu Dharma and the culture as practiced by the Hindu community has a significant contribution to make for the benefit of humanity. It is therefore essential for Hindus living in America to develop unity and harmony in their community to effectively promote these salient features. There are around two million Hindus in the US. Their contributions to the economic, social and cultural life is widely acclaimed.

Introduction

Bharat Vikas Parishad

ImageEstablished in 1963, Bharat Vikas Parishad is a service-cum-sanskar oriented, non-political, socio-cultural voluntary organisation. It is dedicated to the development and growth of our country in all fields of human endeavour - cultural, social, academic, moral, national and spiritual - by promoting a sense of patriotism, national unity and integrity. Our Vision is "Swasth-Samarth-Sanskarit Bharat".

Our Mission is to organise the elite, intellectuals and the well-to-do citizens and to motivate them to serve our poor, disabled, illiterate and ignorant brethren not as an act of charity but in the true spirit of our cultural tradition of service as duty.

Vivekananda Kendra

Image"An aggregate or a congregation of men does not make a nation, nor do the geographical area and duration of time qualify a society to be known as a nation. A government formed on such a basis can be called a state, but not a nation. It is common goal or mission that makes a nation. All the constituents strive collectively for something noble.Service with spiritual orientation results in man-making which invariably and inseparably connected with nation building. It is the core of all our thoughts behind Vivekananda Kendra."
Swami Vivekananda, with intense love in his heart for motherland undertook wanderings all over India.He came to Kanyakumari and sat on 25th,26th and 27th December 1892 on the mid-sea rock meditating on India's PAST, PRESENT and FUTURE.

Akhil Bharatiya Shaikshik Mahasangh

ImageABRSM was launched in 1988 although deliberations about floating such an organization were going on for about three years prior to that. Numerous teacher's organizations were working at that time in their own ways. It is not easy to start an organization when so many organizations were already functioning. But still why our workers arrived at this decision to start a new organization is to be properly understood.

Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad

ImageThe ABVP was started soon after independence with the objective of channelising students’ energies in the task of national reconstruction by a group of students and teachers who drew their inspiration from the RSS, the premier nationalist organisation of the country. Its growth process was slow and sporadic in the first few years but it picked up after Prof. Yeshwantrao Kelkar, a lecturer in Bombay, became its main organiser in 1958. He was its real architect and builder. As a consequence of singe-minded devotion of Prof. Kelkar, who passionately tried to build up this organisation till his death in 1987, the ABVP is what it is today.

Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh

The circumstances in which BHARATIYA MAZDOOR SANGH (BMS) came into existence in the trade union field of India have shaped its significant role in the trade union movement.
 
BMS was founded on 23rd of July, 1955 – the day being the birth anniversary of Lok Manya Bal Gangadhar Tilak – veteran of Freedom Movement. Two important aspects stand out in connection with this:
 
(a)     
Formation of BMS was not the result of split in the existing trade union organisations, unlike in the case of almost all other trade unions. Hence it had the formidable responsibility of building its organisational structure from the grass root level. It started from zero having no trade union, no membership, no activist (karyakarta), no office and no fund.

Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP)

ImageVishva Hindu Parishad (VHP) was founded on 29th August 1964, on the auspicious day of Shri Krishna  Janmashtami , with the blessings of the Saint shakti of Bharat. The objective of the VHP is to organise- consolidate the Hindu society and to serve – protect the Hindu Dharma. A strong, effective, enduring and an ever increasing presence of VHP is seen in lakhs of villages & towns in Bharat. With an increased Hindu activity all over the world, a strong & self confident Hindu organisation is slowly taking shape.

Through over 32000 service projects in the field of health, education, self- empowerment, Gram Shiksha Mandir etc. VHP is strengthening the grass root level of the Hindu society.

Rashtra Sevika Samiti

ImageCreating awareness among women regarding their cultural and social responsibilities is the principal theme of the work of Rashtra Sevika Samiti. The Samiti imparts training to women through regular shakhas, where women gather and participate in various leadership and personality development activities, such as yoga and other physical exercises, team-building games, community service, and discussions. The training involves the development of a woman as a whole – physically, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually – so that she can effectively and positively lead the society. Every woman member in Samiti is called a sevika, one who selflessly works for her society and Nation.
