North American Hindu Chaplains Association (NAHCA)



Spiritual care in the 21st century

A collaboration between Professionals and Volunteers that provide spiritual and pastoral care informed by Hindu teachings and practices

Hindu Chaplaincy


With its beginnings in the informal gatherings convened in Princeton, Yale, and Georgetown Universities, the North American Hindu Chaplains Association was officially formed in 2020 to support professional and volunteer spiritual care providers who are informed by Hindu teachings and practices. 

Our objectives are to:

  • Collate resources for Hindu chaplains and chaplains that support Hindus

  • Develop guidelines around accreditation and endorsement in partnership with recognised bodies

  • Provide opportunities for professional development and currency with standard best practices

  • Raise awareness of the necessity for well-trained spiritual care providers in the holistic care and development of each and every individual.
