VSUK – the beginning

Vaishnav Sangh of UK (VSUK) was inaugurated by learned Shree Dwarkeshlalji Mahodayshri of Ahmedabad (Jejeshri) as the Patron, on 6th September 2009.  It was registered as a Charity with the UK Charity Commission, with effect from 8th November 2010, Charity number 1138847. The Charity operates from the registered office address at 309 Hoe Street, London E17 9BG.

Jejeshri’s Vision

Our Je Je is a direct descendant of Shree Vallabhacharya Mahaprabhuji, in fact the 17th generation, hence the utmost respect and regard held by us at VSUK and the Vaishnavs community worldwide.

 Je Je has had this vision for some years, fairly similar to Shree Vallabhacharya Mahaprabhuji, to pass on knowledge of our Pushti Dharm, to Vaishnavs and in particular to male Vaishnavs.

This may have arisen from the feeling that Pushti Marg is very restrictive, very rigid, too many rules and regulations. Je Je wanted to show that these views have been wrongly founded; Pushti Marg is in essence quite a simple and loving path to follow. Hence the formation of VSUK, a vehicle to initially educate men, of all ages, and the youth also, and at the same time to remove the misunderstood views.

Je Je had felt that our ladies have always been well committed to our Dharm, via quite a few Mahila Mandals (Ladies) functions, satsangs etc. But such commitment has been sadly lacking amongst the men.

Objectives of VSUK:

These are summarised as being:

(i)The welfare and relief of needy person(s) and living creatures.

(ii) The relief of the sick-needy living in the UK and elsewhere in the world either generally or individually through the provision of grants, goods or services.

(iii) The advancement of the Hindu religion and cultural tradition in the UK.

(iv) To advance the education of the public in Hindu religion, culture and traditions including yoga and meditation.

(v) To support local charities, research and community projects and educational establishments.

 Amongst the main objectives of VSUK, is the advancement of Hindu education, religion and spiritual activities. The organization follows Pushti-Marg principals in the service of Lord Krishna, principals that were established by the founder of the faith, Shree Vallabhacharya Mahaprabhuji (reincarnation of Lord Krishna), over 550 years ago.

To achieve this objective, we have been holding a monthly class, since October 2009, a Satsang, on the last Sunday of each month, from 11 to 1pm, to enlighten the members with knowledge about our own Dharm, which we can pass on to the next generation. Because if we do not, then the generations to come will be even more desperately illiterate about our Dharm than we are. The teachers who do the presentations will have received information from Je Je or based on extensive research carried out. We have a very large number of registered members who can all attend, and there is no charge for attendance. There is material provided to the attendees and this is also loaded onto this website, for other members to benefit from.
