About us


The Aberdeen Hindu Association (AHA) is a registered Scottish Charity that strives to preserve and promote the rich and vibrant Hindu culture, which is deeply rooted in values and traditions transcending beyond religion. AHA is run by a group of passionate volunteers in the North East of Scotland who are committed to fostering respect for all beings and religions. We strongly believe in promoting community cohesion and harmony through our cultural heritage. Our ultimate goal is to enhance spiritual well-being, happiness, productivity, and social integration in our community. We achieve this by conducting regular poojas, celebrating Hindu religious festivals, and organising various cultural and educational activities. Join us in our mission to promote peace, harmony, and a sense of belonging among all individuals.


Our vision is to work towards "Truth, Wisdom and Bliss".
The mission we have undertaken is to promote Hindu Dharma (religion and traditions) and culture; to encourage inter-religious, social and cultural understanding. We also endeavour to support the humanitarian causes. We would like the Hindu community in Scotland to feel happy and secure. Spiritual wellbeing contributes to happiness, increased productivity, communal harmony and integration in addition to creating a sense of equality and diversity. We believe that the best way to achieve this is by forming an organisation to arrange for prayer sessions, cultural and educational events.


AHA will apply the income of the Charity in furthering the following objectives:
The advancement of heritage and culture.
The promotion of religious harmony.
The promotion of equality and diversity.
The advancement of religion and philosophical belief.
The charity aims to bring the Hindu community together to a common place and work towards achieving the above objectives.
