World Hindu Congress 2018

CHICAGO, September 2018: His Grace Madhu Pandit Dasa (Chairman, The Akshaya Patra Foundation and President, ISKCON Bangalore) and His Grace Chanchalapathi Dasa (Vice Chairman, The Akshaya Patra Foundation and Senior Vice President, ISKCON Bangalore) were among the eminent speakers at the second World Hindu Congress held in Chicago, U.S. from September 7 to 9, 2018.

The World Hindu Congress (WHC) is a global platform for Hindus to connect, share ideas, inspire one another, and impact the common good. It offers Hindus an opportunity to introspect towards improvement and tap into our collective resources to seek tangible solutions to the most pressing issues of our age.

Held once every four years, WHC’s seven parallel conferences showcase how the values, creativity, and entrepreneurial spirit of the global Hindu community find expression in a variety of spheres, including economic, education, media, organizational, and political, as well as the unique leadership and contributions of Hindu women and youth. WHC also serves as a platform to address critical issues impacting Hindus worldwide, including human rights, discrimination, and cultural assaults.

His Grace Madhu Pandit Dasa, in his speech at the WHC 2018, raised the issue of declining Hindu population in traditional Hindu areas and demographic change.
