A Glimpse of Hindu Civilization Exhibit in Arlington Heights

On April 24, volunteers from various Hindu Dharmic organizations in the Arlington Heights, Illinois area organized a traveling poster exhibit titled “Darshana: A Glimpse of Hindu Civilization.” The exhibition had posters on arts, science, divinity, architecture, scriptures, spiritual traditions, festivals, clothing, yoga, medicine and others.

This nationwide traveling exhibition aims to deepen knowledge of Hindu culture and its contributions to society, creating an environment of harmonious coexistence while pursuing universal unity. This exhibit has insight into various facets like Hindu Dharmic path and Hindu civilization including traditions, culture, contribution and fun facts.

It is a free exhibition to understand a little more about Hindu culture and its civilization – a civilization which is the oldest continuous one in the world. Apart from its time-tested principles and techniques for realizing the true nature of the self, the Hindu civilization has contributed to several areas of human endeavour.

The event is promoted by Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh USA, Inc., (HSS), a 501© (3) tax exempt charity.

HSS promotes self-discipline, self-confidence and a spirit of selfless service to humanity through its structured values ​​education program for Hindu children and adults. Currently, HSS operates nearly 250 branches nationwide in 34 states.

HSS volunteers have been at the forefront of humanitarian relief in their respective neighborhoods in 2020 during the difficult time of COVID-19. In 2021, RSS volunteers are also participating in vaccination campaigns in many communities. Besides social service, our annual national programs such as “Health for Humanity Yogathon” are gaining popularity in American society where people from all walks of life participate.

Hindus contribute to the surrounding community as individuals and as a community. Therefore, we are organizing this exhibition nationwide to enable our neighbours, leaders, educators and the community to learn more about Hindu civilization.
