Serving the Hindu community in Australia
Welcome to the website of the Australian Council of Hindu Clergy. We are a council of Hindu priests, monks, nuns, astrologers and preachers (kathakaras) coming from a wide range of backgrounds:— India, Srilanka, Nepal, Fiji and South Africa and practicing throughout Australia. We are dedicated to the service of the Hindu community at large and the promotion of the Hindu Dharma in general and have been operating since 1989.
We are here to help you to celebrate your festivals and observe your sacraments such as birth, marriage and funerals etc. As well as playing a role in educating and instructing the community in all matters pertaining to the theory and practice of the Dharma.

False Advertising by so-called PANDITS
There are a number of so-called PANDITS that advertise in the local Indian Newspapers, claiming to be able to remove black-magic and witchcraft, to practice faith-healing, bring back-loved ones and to solve every problem with 100% Guarantee and 100% satisfaction.
These so-called PANDITS are not members of this organization and have nothing to do with us. We do not approve of their practices nor do we endorse their claims. No one, not even scientists can give 100% guarantee about anything and to claim this regarding voodoo and black-magic and other personal problems is plainly misleading, deceptive and false advertising.
We request you to avoid these charlatans by all means.
THE LOTUS MANDAPA
We are proud to announce that the Bhumi-Puja and ground-breaking ceremony for the Lotus Mandapa will be done on the 14th September 2016 mid morning.
This beautiful mandap which is the first of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere will be shared with all the Dharma communities (Hindu, Buddhist, Jain and Sikh).
