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


Satyanarayana Pooja on Bhajan day – Friday 18 May at Helensvale Community Centre, 31 Discovery Drive from 7pm onwards.

Shree Satyanarayan Puja is worship dedicated to Lord Vishnu (the Preserver). ‘Satya’ means truth, ‘Narayan’ means the highest and ultimate form of “being.

The puja, performed since ancient times, dates back to the Skanda Purana (holy text), where it is written that a Hindu sage, Narada asked Lord Vishnu the mantra or the way to end the miseries of the people on Earth and was informed that the worship of Lord Satyanarayan will be the ultimate way of happiness and moksha (liberation) in this Kaliyuga (current period per the Hindu calendar).

This Puja is considered very holy and hence it is considered very auspicious and beneficial for everyone to do, so as to succeed and fulfil our desires, improve physical and mental health and move towards spirituality. The puja protects us and moves us to the path of goodness and truth.

Please book on our website to participate in the puja http://culture.goldcoasthindu.org/mydonation/

Asato mā sadgamaya From ignorance, lead me to truth
Tamasomā jyotir gamaya From darkness, lead me to light
Mrityormāamritam gamaya From death, lead me to immortality
Oṁ śhānti śhānti śhāntiḥ Om peace, peace, peace

(Brihadaranyaka Upanishad — I.iii.28)
