The World Hindu Congress (WHC) is a global platform for Hindus to connect, share ideas, inspire one another, and impact the common good. It offers Hindus an opportunity to introspect towards improvement and tap into our collective resources to seek tangible solutions to the most pressing issues of our age.
Held once every four years, WHC’s seven parallel conferences showcase how the values, creativity, and entrepreneurial spirit of the global Hindu community find expression in a variety of spheres, including economic, education, media, organizational and political, as well as the unique leadership and contributions of Hindu women and youth. WHC also serves as a platform to address critical issues impacting Hindus worldwide, including human rights, discrimination, and cultural assaults.
The inaugural WHC, held in New Delhi in November 2014, saw 1800 delegates from 53 countries.
The second World Hindu Congress will be held in Chicago, Illinois, U.S. from September 7 – 9, 2018.
Inspired by the Hindu principle, Sumantrite Suvikrante or THINK COLLECTIVELY, ACHIEVE VALIANTLY, and commemorating
the 125th anniversary of Swami Vivekananda’s historic address to the Parliament of World Religions in Chicago,
the WHC2018 promises to be a movement not to be missed.
