Hindu Centre is an independent, non-governmental organization dedicated to the spiritual progress of Hindus in Singapore through education (Jnana), devotion (Bhakti) and service (Seva). It is the Centre’s belief that head, heart and hand must be harmonized for spiritual progress to take place. In view of this, Hindu Centre’s programmes and activities are organized and conducted for the purpose of enabling members to learn and become more informed about the basic philosophies and tenets of the Hindu faith, deepening and intensifying their sadhana or spiritual practice, while at the same time creating opportunities to engage in seva or service.
