The Gold Coast Hindu Cultural Association (GCHCA) strives to enhance the cultural engagement and spiritual experience of all Hindus in our diverse community. The association seeks to do this through providing members of the community with a platform to develop, promote and expand initiatives in education, the arts, community services and religious affairs.

The proposed “Hindu Cultural and Education Centre” would be the physical abode of the GCHCA where Hindu cultural activities such as classical literature, music, dance and classical language & spiritual education will be nurtured.

We welcome the support of all in furthering the noble objectives of the GCHCA. Please contact us to find out how you can become a Member for Life.


Upcoming Events

Celebrate Ram Navami with us on Friday, 23 March at Helensvale Community Centre, 31 Discovery Drive from 7pm to 10pm.

You are all invited to celebrate Lord Rama’s birthday with us on Friday, 23 March. It is also the day that some celebrate Lord Rama and Sita’s marriage day. Rama (literally meaning the blissful and one who gives joy to others) is the 7th incarnation (avatar) of Vishnu.

The Sun is considered to be the progenitor of Rama’s Solar dynasty. Lord Rama, through his noble and divine choices, teaches the world to choose to give charity (dharma) over the mere accumulation of wealth (Artha).

Lord Rama teaches that:
As a child – Respect, be loyal, care and love your parents and uphold your family’s dignity.

As a spouse – Protect, care and love each other and make spirituality the ultimate goal.
As a citizen – Do all that you can for the community.
We will have Pooja, then Bhajans, Recital of stotras/ Rama katha (stories) by Hanuman Raj group followed by Aarti and dinner. Please book through https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/ram-navami-celebration-in-gold-coast-23-march-2018-tickets-43803820406 if you would like to participate. To cover cost, donations welcome through our website http://culture.goldcoasthindu.org/wp-content/html/donform.html.


GCHCA celebrated Maha Shivaratri on Tuesday, 13 February

Namaskar to all of you who attended Maha Shivaratri function and made it a spiritually charged day. My thanks goes to Sri Krrishnamohan and his BSK students who sang the rudram, to Sanjiv and DJJS members for their beautiful bhajan songs, to Pundit Hariji for the pooja, Babuji and our members for making it happen.

Maha Shivaratri was spiritually celebrated with around 150 participants on Tuesday, 13 February. Being a working day did not deter Siva’s ardent devotees. In future we would like to have an all night event when our Gold Coast temple is constructed and appeal to your good selves to donate to our temple build by donating for bricks.

We thank participants and donors for the $4,298 given at Maha Shivaratri.

Please visit our facebook page to view photos of Maha Shivaratri evening. https://www.facebook.com/GCHCA/
