Selected Blessings and Compliments:

“I have known and worked with HSC leaders for 15 years and feel proud of their sincerity, courage and hard work. I support their efforts and encourage other community leaders to join their activities. In fact, they are shouldering many of the responsibilities of traditional gurus and kshatriyas, by making sure that Hinduism is fairly represented on the US campuses.”

“Amma is immensely happy to learn about the activities of the Hindu Students Council (HSC) of North America…It is also heartening to know that the organization is celebrating its 25th year. To see our youth becoming more and more spiritually inclined is truly inspiring. A transformation in the younger generation, a change in their perspective can create wonders.”
HH Mata Amritanandamayi Devi ("Amma")
“Hindu Students Council is doing a wonderful job. It is imperative that dharmic principles be impressed in the minds of all Hindu youth, and you are fulfilling this admirably in colleges throughout USA. Understanding and practicing dharma, these youth will stand strong for Hinduism here in the West and make a difference.”
Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami
Founder, "Hinduism Today" Magazine and Kauai Hindu Monastery
“Hindu Students Council is a dynamic group of young Hindus dedicated to preserving and promoting the knowledge and values of Sanatana Dharma.”

Director, American Institute of Vedic Studies
“I am delighted to participate in this Global Dharma Conference…I consider that this conference will provide us an opportunity for introspection and mid-course correction to realize the concept of Universal Brotherhood.”
His Excellency, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam
Former President of India
“HSC is a vitally important organization with the potential to shape the consciousness of the next generation of Hindus in North America. It is something that the Hindu community needs to nurture and encourage as much as possible. Meeting with the bright and motivated young people of the HSC inspired me with hope for the future. It has been a pleasure to work with them and I hope to have more such opportunities in the years to come.”

"The organizers of this Global Dharma Conference have done a great job. People will gain a lot of positive feelings from this and good work will be done. So, we congratulate the organizers. Also, we congratulate all the dignitaries who have delivered good messages and guidance and thank you all."
Pramukh Swami Maharaj
“My heartfelt congratulations to all those who are working very hard to spread the message of Dharma, especially to the second generation of Hindus living in this country. It is said that Dharma protects the one who practices Dharma. Our Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayanandaji believed that a country or the world can change only when each individual appreciates the value of living a Dharmic life. The total individual character becomes the character of a nation. Therefore, spreading the message of Dharma is in line with our Vedic culture. I am glad to seem that our Youngsters have taken up this great task.”
Pujya Swami Shantanandaji
President, Chinmaya Mission West
