Members of the Hindu Federation are actively involved in community outreach activities. Recent activities include:

Vishnu Mandir

 Dwarka Persaud and Omkar Persaud represented the Vishnu Mandir in an in-depth presentation on Hinduism to community service personnel of The Regional Municipality of York at their head office in Newmarket. The presentation covered:

  • The meaning of Hinduism
  • The concepts of karma and re-incarnation
  • The four goals of life (Dharma, Artha, Kaama and Moksha)
  • Hindu Texts
  • Differences and commonalities with other religions
  • The Pancha Mahayagyas
Mississauga Ram Mandir

The Mississauga Ram Mandir hosted an orientation session for the graduating class of the new Police Officers from Peel Region. The session was conducted by Pandit Roopnauth Sharma, and was focused on awareness of the Hindu Community and its religion, customs and way of life. It was an interactive session that resulted in the Police Officers leaving with a good understanding of the basic tenets of Hinduism, which should put them in good stead as they work with the Hindu and broader community.
