Educate. Empower. Unify. … how can you weave this into the theme?

Hinduism has made countless positive contributions to society. Hinduism gave Meditation, Yoga, and Ayurveda to the planet. So much has been forgotten over human history. It’s time to bring Hinduism onto the world stage for all the inclusivity, peace, and upliftment that it brings to Society.

Over time, Hindus have been inaccurately and inadequately represented around the globe. The Hindu community at large has not done a stellar job of making the world aware of all the contributions that the religion has made.

Hinduism is the oldest religion on the planet and has survived countless centuries. The core of Hinduism is about peace, love, and oneness with every being … a giant ONE-WORLD FAMILY (VasubhaivaKutumbakam). Therefore, inherently, it is a non-violent and inclusive philosophy.

Our goal is to promote the beautiful core values of Hinduism in our community. Through our partnerships, we have been bringing multiculturalism and diversity to London very successfully through our Diwali and Holi celebrations!

Who We Are

Our Guiding Principles

The Hindu Legacy group is politically agnostic and non-partisan, meaning we are informed, but do not favor and cannot endorse any one political party or any candidates. We will work with all individuals and institutions committed to and constructively engaged in promoting dignity, mutual respect, and equality. Our group is not affiliated with any religious or political organizations or entities. We seek to serve Hindus across all sampradaya (Hindu religious traditions and sects) regardless of race, color, national origin, ethnicity, ancestry, citizenship, gender, sexual orientation, age and/or disability.

Our positions are based on a relentless pursuit of facts; deep consideration of Hindu principles such as freedom, equality, and justice; and the input of subject matter experts. We will support causes and people based on our guiding principles. We will always advocate for what we believe is rooted in Hindu Dharma, and serves the well-being of Hindus and the greater good of all including …

● Satya. Be truthful. We pride ourselves in offering programming and information with accuracy, integrity, and honesty.
● Ahimsa. Be non-harming. We aspire to work and communicate fairly, constructively, and respectfully.
● Viveka. Be wise. We approach our work with intelligence, discernment, and reflection.
● Nutana. Be innovative. We aspire to keep our work and approach creative, innovative, and flexible.
● Sadbhavana. Be collaborative. We seek out partnerships with other individuals and organizations on a foundation of mutual respect to forward our shared objectives.
● Kutumbakam. Be selfless and inclusive. We value and respect each other and keep our focus on serving a greater good.
● Utsaah. Be passionate. We are passionate about Hindu Dharma, the global community, and our work.

While our focus is on the wellbeing of Hindus, we also work to ensure that all people and the planet thrive. We believe that this is possible only when and where dignity, mutual respect, and pluralism are nurtured and sustained. That’s why we promote these three principles.

Standing up for the rights of Hindus and other minorities around the world does require us to highlight current and historical discrimination, subjugation, and violation of human rights committed by members of other religious communities. This does not mean we are against other religions but stems from the belief that factual integrity is necessary to raise awareness, seek justice, and end suffering.
