Hinduism is more 'inclusive' and not 'exclusive', RSS Chief at London

Golden Jubilee of HSS-UK witnessed an unprecedented residential gathering of over 2200 Hindus from across UK and Europe from 29 to 31 July at Hertfordshire County Show Ground, near Luton.
The fully tented (over 400 tents) transformed the gathering with Sanskaar, Sewa and Sangathan.

The world will flourish when all cultures in their diversity are respected, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat said as he called Hinduism as a religion which is "more inclusive and not exclusive".



Bhagwat described Hinduism as a way of life as he addressed yesterdays concluding session of the three-day Sanskriti MahaShibir organised by UK-based charity Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh at Hertfordshire, about 50 km from here.

He spoke about the positive aspects of Hinduism which believed in the principle of Vasudeiva Kutumbakam (the world is one family).

"In a diverse world, every culture has to be respected and when all cultures are respected, the world will flourish," the RSS Chief told over 2,200 delegates from the UK and the Europe who attended the MahaShibir.


He said Hinduism is "more inclusive and not exclusive".

Bhagwat also spoke about the conflict between development and environment and said: "Hinduism has answers to the question should environment be compromised because of development.



Emphasizing that exercise is essential for a healthy body and mind, he said "healthy society depends on leading a disciplined life, with proper eating habits and regular exercise."

During the three-day deliberations there were in-depth discussion among others on Sanskaar (values of life), Sewa (selfless service) and Sangathan (community spirit).

The MahaShibir was addressed among others by Swami Daytmananda, Head of Ramakrishna Vedanta Centre UK, Smami Nirliptananda, Head of London Sewashram Sangh UK and Acharya Viday Bhaskar, Omkaranda Ashram Switzerland.
The Deputy Mayor of London for Business, Mr Rajesh Agrawal, attended a breakfast meeting with top business leaders and HSS UK on Friday.

An exhibition displaying the numerous achievements of HSS UK in the past 50 years is a special attraction at the event.

RSS inspired socio-cultural organisation HSS – UK which started its activities in 1966 in UK. HSS is involved in Charity , Spiritual activities and many other Social activities which is always an inspiration for all.
