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

Why World Hindu
When people are able to come together on a shared platform
for a shared purpose, inspired by shared values, only good things happen. But
such opportunities for Hindus, specifically, have been few and far between. The
World Hindu Congress seeks to change that.
Hindus have both spiritual and secular needs. Unfortunately,
many of the secular needs and challenges have been left for others to handle.
The WHC seeks to fill in this very important gap.
The inaugural WHC, held 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, the World Hindu Congress 2018 promises
to be a movement not to be missed.
On the eve of the 125th anniversary of Swami Vivekananda’s
historic address to the Parliament of World Religions in Chicago, Hindus from
around the world and of all backgrounds are invited to actively participate.
