About us


Forum for Religious Freedom (FRF) supports the separation of religion and state and advocates pluralism worldwide. Religious diversity is a precious human asset, and is under great threat around the world. FRF draws its inspiration and respect for all religious traditions from the pluralistic ethos of Hinduism and other Dharma traditions.

Here is a link to our IRS letter of determination of tax exemption.

FRF is endorsed by the Hindu Dharma Acharya Sabha, the apex,  non-denominational, unifying body that provides leadership, guidance and a collective voice for the Hindus. FRF is proud to have received the endorsement of this augustbody and hopes to collaborate with them (and other like-minded groups) on issues of common interest.

Hindu Dharma Acharya Sabha

The Hindu Dharma Acharya Sabha consists of the heads of over 125 ancient Hindu traditional institutions. Every region, varna and sampradaya are represented in this august body, making it a truly diverse and pluralistic body that provides a united voice and guidance for Hindus.  The formation of the Acharya Sabha is unique in India’s history bringing together the following traditions, that share many things in common even as they are diverse: Advaita, Dvaita, Vaishnava, Sena Sampradaya, Lingayat, Saiva Adheenam, Varkari, Vallabhacharya, Nimbarka, Swaminarayan, Suddhadvaita, Pushtimarga, Vaishnava,  Kabir Panth and others.
