Hindu Samaj Temple

About This Organization

The Hindu Samaj of Hamilton & Region is a registered non-profit charitable religious organization. Hindu Samaj strives to satisfy the spiritual, social, educational, and cultural needs of the Hindu community residing in Hamilton and surrounding communities. We have been serving the community since 1976. In 1984, the Hindu Samaj was able to purchase a church that was gradually converted into a temple and completed in 1993. In September 2001, our temple was destroyed by fire in a hate-crimes related incident. This sad event was a mark of how far we still have to go to in the struggle of inclusivity, tolerance and diversity. The Hindu Samaj took this tragic incident and turned it into a ground breaking event to commemorate our united community struggle to stand united and work towards making Hamilton the best place to raise a child. With generous help from the community in Hamilton, over $1 MILLION was raised to build a new temple, which is almost near completion.

    Hindu Samaj Temple The Seva Challenge: What is Your Seva?

    Seva is an act of compassion or an act of kindness; it’s a selfless action designed to give help to others. It can be as simple as a smile you give to a child or donating crayons to a school in need. It’s helping others without expectation of receiving any reward, return of a favor or receiving any acknowledgement. The Hindu Samaj Temple strives to help spread Seva in the community and teaches education about this important concept at the Temple as part of religious education services.
