MATTHEWS, NC – The 4th Hindu Unity Day, orchestrated by the HSS Greater Charlotte & South Carolina Chapter, transpired at the BAPS Swaminarayan Mandir in Matthews, NC on August 5. The event drew robust participation from representatives of Hindu and Indian organizations, cementing their commitment to collaborate for the betterment of the Hindu community.

Vikas Deshpande, of the HSS, delivered the keynote address, expressing gratitude for the enthusiastic involvement of the organizations. He emphasized the necessity of working in unison to fortify Hindu unity, fortitude, and preparedness. He drew attention to pertinent challenges, including the California state’s introduction of the caste bill sb403. He urged vigilance against divisive measures that could disrupt the cohesion among community members.

The event garnered participation from 34 organizations spanning temples, spiritual and yoga groups, regional and language-based associations, wellness institutions, and business entities. Representatives outlined their organizations’ visions and missions, pledging to collaborate to bolster Hindu unity.

Eighteen additional organizations expressed their intent to join the event in the future, sharing video messages or committing to support the noble mission of reinforcing Hindu unity for successive generations.

In his opening remarks, Aravind Modini welcomed the representatives and underscored the transformative power of unity. Modini highlighted the peaceful nature of the Hindu community and its substantial contributions to technology, medicine, and business in the United States. Emphasizing the need to establish an ecosystem for future generations to embrace and preserve Hindu culture without trepidation, Modini called for practical actions rather than mere symbolic gestures in the name of Hindu unity.

Community leaders including Baldev Thakor from the Art of Living, Mumukshu Brahmbhatt from BAPS Swaminarayan Mandir, Hemant Amin from the Hindu Center, and Shri Vimal Patel from the Gujarati Samaj, NC, attended the event. Representatives from various organizations participated, engaging in informative presentations.

Attendees relished a delectable vegetarian dinner courtesy of the BAPS Mandir following the presentations, creating an atmosphere of camaraderie and shared purpose.
