Encouraged by the interest expressed by a number of temples and associations at the fourth Australian national Hindu conference held last September in Melbourne, the Hindu Organisations, Temples and Associations (HOTA) Forum in Victoria was launched.
The first HOTA forum will be held at the Sri Vakratunda Vinayagar Hindu Temple, Basin, Melbourne, on Sunday, 5 June, between 10am and 2 pm.
HOTA Victoria is a division of Vishva Hindu Parishad of Australia, Victoria chapter. The HOTA secretariat is actively helping and looking to provide a common platform for Hindu Organisations in Victoria. This is an ideal opportunity to meet other Hindu organisations and establish continuous community channel for mutual benefit. Through the HOTA forum, Hindu organisations will collectively come together to create a new force of community service, which would never be possible working in isolation.
Quoting Sri Swamiji, “HOTA demonstrates that there definitely is strength and value in sharing resources, networking, collaborating and working together.”
