Hindu Swayamsewak Sangh
Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh (HSS) Germany 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 swayamsevikas for women), emphasizing values such as self-discipline, self-confidence and a spirit of selfless service (seva) 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 Germany in order to spread this message widely. HSS Germany has shakhas (branches) in 10 different cities across Germany.
