The History of Hindu Cultural Society of Bradford

Previous
Next

The majority of Hindus came to the U.K in the 1950s, 60 and 70s in search of work and to meet the economic needs of their families back home. Most of the Hindus came to the U.K from Punjab and Gujarat in India and also from East Africa in 1970s. In the beginning years, they faced severe hardship and struggle to make both ends meet and lived in very poor conditions. It was a matter of survival. They worked very hard, often working long hours to establish themselves in the U.K. Most of them had young family’s. Once they were fully settled in the U.K, they felt the need to create a common place, where they could meet regularly to meet their Social, Cultural and religious needs. They felt that if they didn’t take action then, they and their children may lose touch with their religion and culture.

Bhaagavad Gita

Eternal Message of Spiritual Wisdom

SERVE

Just as they think of Him from different angles and as everything, they also have different ways of serving Him

LOVE

It preaches that one gives up selfishness in love, not expecting anything in return

GIVE

When it comes to giving, we should keep in mind our mortality and not postpone acts of charity

Understanding of God

PURIFY

Hinduism has a concept of impurity and a system of purification

MEDITATE

In spiritual parlance, meditation implies the mind’s total absorption on the inner Self, and Lord Krishna outlines the steps to be observed for its successful practice

REALISE

Self-realization (Atma-jnana or Atma Bodh) is knowledge of the true self beyond both delusion and identification with material phenomena
