Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh France (referred to as HSS) was established in 2022 by Hindus who had immigrated to France during that period. It was registered as a Charity in 1974 with the following preamble “it is a part of the accepted doctrine of the Hindu religion that its practice develops in its adherents both love for Bharat (India) as the Holy Land of the Hindus and the spirit of eternal Hinduism. which means love for the whole of humanity regardless of race, country, nationality, religion, sect, faith, caste, or creed and furthermore that this spirit enables such adherents to become better and more useful citizens.
The preamble has been the spirit of the HSS since its inception. The primary aims and objectives of the HSS activities revolve around‘Sanskār (spiritual development), Sewā (service to humanity), and Sangathan (coming together)’, thus promotin Hindu Dharma (Religion), Hindu ideals, and the Hindu way of life in the British multicultural environment.
In furtherance of its aims and objectives, HSS (France) takes inspiration, interacts, shares promotes, and participates in events of many like-minded organizations worldwide such as Chinmaya Mission, Art of Living, ISKCON, and Swaminarayan Organisations.
