About VHPA Chicago

Vision

A dynamic, vibrant Hindu Society inspired by the eternal values of Dharma, and the lofty ideal of Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam, meaning, The entire creation is one family.

Dynamic – A society that is moving with the times, nay, verily pushing the envelop of time, ever radiating the timeless wisdom of the Rishis in every act, every achievement, every endeavor. A society that is the master of all sciences, technologies and arts that are known, and yet to be known, to humankind. A society that is boldly experimenting, exploring, discovering and personally experiencing and validating all aspects of the Truth manifested in the universe as it unfolds outside and within us. A society that is fearless, strong, courageous and mighty.

Vibrant – Not a stagnant society but one full of energy and vigor, nurturing the ideas, creativity and aspirations of every member, big and small. A healthy, prosperous society, adorned by the twin jewels of arts and music, beaming with joy and confidence that comes only from abundance. A society that is forever alert and vigilant!
